K-media outlet reported on November 30 KST that BTS members Jimin and Jungkook may be receiving their basic military training under the guidance of assistant instructor, Kim Seok Jin!
Jin, who was the first member of BTS to complete his mandatory military service in December of last year, is now serving as an assistant instructor for new recruits at the New Recruit Training Center in Yeoncheon-gun, Gyeonggi province. He also met with WINNER member Kang Seung Yoon, whom he successfully completed his basic training at that base in July of this year.
It’s possible that he’ll have to welcome two more special recruits in December, two of whom are his dongsaengs! According to reports, Jimin and Jungkook have been assigned to the Yeoncheon-gun base for their 6-week training before receiving official assignments.
Earlier this week, HYBE Labels announced that all of the remaining BTS members, including RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, will be joining their mandatory military service in December, which means they will all be completed by mid-2025.
