To add to the list, GOT7 has 3 years left before starting enlisting and will be in their 9th year since debut when their first member (JB) will join the army.

There are 3 groups who have less than one year since the departure of one member to the army namely with: BTS ‘s Jin, MONSTA X ‘s ShowNu, and PENTAGON ‘s JinHo. In 2020, they will be going as they were born in 1992.

Can BTS be the first group to buck precedent and go altogether? I don't reasonably think so (too much cash involved) but wouldn't it be marvelous? Frankly, I'd be happy if any group chose this path. They are all stronger together. Gosh, Monsta X...., they are just starting to hit their stride.

Going altogether seems like it could be a double edged sword but frankly, no one has actually done it :) No one even remotely knows how it might turn out.
