BTS Members’ Military Discharge Dates Out: Awaiting Jin, Jungkook, Jimin, V, Suga, J-Hope, and RM’s Comeback


All seven members of the South Korean boy band BTS have commenced their compulsory military service. Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, RM, V, and Jungkook will reunite in 2025. Singers RM and V began their military duties in December 2023, followed by Jimin and Jungkook. In South Korea, it’s mandatory for all men between 18 and 35 to serve in the military. Despite discussions about exempting BTS, the members collectively chose to fulfill their military duties.

The enlistments of BTS began with Jin, the eldest member, heading to a military training center near the North Korean border shortly after turning 30. According to My K-Pop Shows, Jin is expected to complete his service on June 12, 2024.

Subsequently, J-Hope and Suga commenced their enlistment. Suga enlisted on September 22, 2023, while J-Hope started his service on April 18, 2023. J-Hope is anticipated to complete his service around October 17, 2024. Meanwhile, Suga, also known as Min Yoongi, is serving in the public sector instead of the military, with a scheduled discharge on June 21, 2025.

Kim Namjoon, known as RM, and Kim Taehyung, known as V, both entered the military on December 11, 2023. RM’s discharge date is set for June 6, 2025, while V is also expected to make his comeback on the same day. Additionally, BTS members Jimin and Jungkook began their military service on December 12, 2023, and are likely to be discharged on June 11, 2025.

Fans on the internet expressed their excitement. One of them wrote, “We’re getting closer to your discharge date~♡ here’s to another year of us staying fine and bulletproofing till 2025.” RM had previously shared on Weverse, “What I’m thinking right now is, these days, when I’m doing my solo projects, is, this is just like a vacation to get back to where I was, which was BTS and ARMY. So, all the solo [work] is just a journey, but it is a very important journey for chapter two. It’s a journey to get back home safe, eventually, when we get back and reunite together in 2025.”
