BTS Jhope Military Service. The members of the most popular boyband BTS are soon leaving for mandatory military service according to their individual schedules. After the eldest member Jin, rapper Jhope is all set to enlist. There were rumors that Jung Hoseok will leave for his military training on April 18. Korean media outlet News1 reported that BTS Jhope will be enlisting on Tuesday at the Gangwon Province training center. Earlier, the rapper had revealed that the date of his enlistment is out but he did not announce it. However, in an emotional Weverse LIVE on Friday, Jhope confirmed that he will be discharged on October 17 from the military service.

BTS Jhope read a comment by an ARMY and said, "Just waiting for Hobi’s discharge date of October 17, 2024.’ Ah. October 17th. Right!" This was Jhope's last LIVE with the fans before he leaves for the military. The rapper assured fans that he will go and come back soon and that he has prepared a lot of content for the fans when he is gone. Jhope has already geared up for his military service, however, BTS' agency BigHit Music in a statement refrained from confirming his enlistment date. The agency stated, "It is difficult for us to confirm the date and location of J-Hope’s enlistment. We ask for your understanding in this regard."

There are also reports that rather than April 18, Jhope will enlist earlier on April 17. The rapper also informed fans that Jungkook was supposed to have a longer schedule in LA but he arranged it according to his enlistment date so that he can be there to see his 'hyung' off.

Recently, Jhope also shared his photos in short hair ahead of his enlistment. He joined two other BTS members- Jungkook and V aka Kin Taehyung- for a get-together where he went LIVE with V and showed his short hair to the fans.

He later shared the photos on his Instagram with a scissor emoji in the caption.

Last month, BTS' management agency BigHit Music confirmed that Jhope will start his mandatory military service soon. In a statement posted on Weverse, the agency said the 29-year-old singer has applied for "the termination of his enlistment postponement". "We would like to inform our fans that j-hope has initiated the military enlistment process by applying for the termination of his enlistment postponement," the statement read.

"We ask you for your continued love and support for Jhope until he completes his military service and safely returns. Our company will spare no effort in providing support for our artist," the agency added.

Meanwhile, Jin was the first member of the boy band to be enlisted in the military. He began his 18 months of mandatory military service at a front-line South Korean boot camp in December.
