Suga becomes the third BTS member to enlist in the military. His enlistment date is September 22, 2023.
He appeared to have cut off his long hair on the BTS Weverse Live on the 17th and said, “I’m alive and well. I haven’t shown it to the outside world, but I’ve been living a very busy life. It’s not something to cry about. We’re supposed to meet in 2025. It’s a shame that I can’t do something for two years, but I still have a promise, so don’t worry, let’s meet in 2025.”
Suga has been determined to be a ‘social service personnel,’ which is an alternative form of Korean military service. He will undergo basic military training and then fulfill his military service as a social service personnel. The official reason for the sentence has not been disclosed, but observers have suggested that it is related to the shoulder surgery he underwent in a car accident in 2020.
Suga is said to have a lot of filming left for his web series “Time to Drink with Suga (SuChwiTa)”, so he’ll be able to keep in touch with his fans.
