It was reported that BTS member Jin has submitted a notice to cancel his military postponement. According to a recent report dated November 4, he submitted his military postponement notice to the Military Manpower Association. As of press time, the group's talent management HYBE has not yet released a statement regarding this.

If these reports are confirmed, it could mean that Jin, as well the other BTS members in the future are now eligible to be called to enlist to the military at any time. Jin's enlistment to the Korean military was postponed previously until December 31, 2022 Korea Standard Time.

BTS was a talk of the town after it was confirmed that the group's members will be enlisted for military service. Korean music and talent company HYBE has officially announced that the first member to be enlisted is Jin who is the eldest member of the popular 7-member boy group.

Defense Minister Lee Jong-sup and Culture Minister Park Go Gyun said in a statement previously that "it is desirable" for the members of BTS to accomplish their military duties to make sure that there is fairness in South Korea's military service.

Under the South Korean law, Korean men are required to perform military service for a period of 18 to 21 months. The law also provides exemptions to Korean athletes, musicians (classical and traditional), and dancers (e.g. ballet) who have won in major competitions that bring pride and prestige to the country. Since this is mandatory, some would have to suspend their professional careers. The exemptions of the service are still a highly sensitive topic until this day.

Back in August, Lee stated if ever BTS would join the military, there are still likely to be allowed to continue practicing and join nonserving members of the K-pop group in overseas group tours.
