Big Hit Entertainment speculates that BTS Jin's mandatory military enlistment may be postponed until end of 2021


Big Hit Entertainment speculates that BTS Jin's military enlistment may be postponed until the end of next year.

In spite of the label's recent registration for Korea's Composite Stock Price Index, the Financial Services Commission received a document containing Big Hit Entertainment's position regarding Jin's military enlistment. As a point of consideration for potential investors, the uncertainty surrounding Jin's future mandatory military enlistment had had to be addressed by the company.  

According to agency, there is a "high possibility" that Jin, as the oldest member of BTS, will be able to postpone his enlistment until the end of 2021. Although nothing has been confirmed as of yet, the label speculates that such case would be most likely.

Meanwhile, the Military Service Act, which may be revised to include pop culture artists to qualify for postponement, is also an impending element awaiting legal authorization.

Stay tuned for updates.

Lets take an example on recent idols. Suho of Exos birthdate is May 22, 1991, which means he is 29 internationally and 30 Korean age as we speak. He wen to enlistment recently on May 14, 2020, which was a week right before he turned 29. That means technically he enlisted at the age of 28.

So Jin has to go maximum by the end of November 2021, science he turns 29 on the beginning of December 2021. Everyone must enlist when theyre still 28/before they turn 29 by the current rule.

SK used to allow a rule where you can postpone until you are 20 internationally or 31 Korean age. Theyre trying to bring it back with an article what was discarded and a new amendment (4th).

So its not going to be postponed but delay, BUT it is still at the original time frame. Nothing is out of place.
