Suga of BTS to begin military service

BTS member Suga is set to begin his mandatory military service on Friday.

According to a statement from BIGHIT MUSIC on Sunday, Suga will undergo military training starting on September 22.

"There will not be any official events taking place on the day he starts his service or on the day he enters the training camp," BIGHIT MUSIC wrote on WeVerse.

"We kindly ask fans to refrain from visiting Suga at his workplace during the period of his service," the statement read. "Please convey your warm regards and encouragement in your hearts only."

The music label also asks fans to continue sending love and support to Suga until "he completes his service and returns."

"Our company will also strive to provide all the support that he needs during this time," BIGHIT MUSIC said.

Last month, Suga started the initiation process of his military enlistment.

Jin, the eldest member of BTS, was the first member to enlist in the South Korean military in December last year. He was followed by J-Hope, who enlisted last April.

BTS, composed of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jungkook, V, RM, and Jimin, is set to reconvene as a group around 2025.
