On September 21 KST, DSP Media took to KARD's official fan cafe to announce that the date for member J.seph's enlistment has been confirmed for October 5.
Upon the announcement, J.seph took to his personal Instagram account to release a handwritten letter to his fans. In the letter, he writes:
"Hello, this is KARD's J.seph (Taehyung).
In 2011, when I was 20 years old, I came up to Seoul to start working as a singer.
I was able to spend my precious 20s meaningfully, and at a little older of an age than most,
I will be entering the military on October 5.
The unfamiliar, different, and new environment makes me a little scared,
but I'm also looking forward to my life that will be renewed with a different status.
I will faithfully fulfil my duty as a man of the Republic of Korea,
and return to your side once again with pride.
In the meantime, please support Matthew, Somin, and Jiwon's activities,
and please watch over them with good eyes.
I will hold onto the unyielding love and energy you have shown me in the past
and return in good health.
Meanwhile, KARD recently wrapped up promotions for their single "Gunshot," which was released on August 26.
