Suga cried at his Seoul concert

At his concert on Sunday, Suga was seen crying while performing. He later took to Weverse and held a live session. As translated by Twitter user @ryuminating, Suga said, “I really am not the type to cry, but starting from Snooze, I felt it. The members were there and my sunbaenims came too. Before, I had dreams while watching many sunbaenims and now I have become someone’s sunbae. And those 10 years flew past me. And that’s when the tears came."

Suga hinted it was his last concert

He hinted that the Seoul concert was his last performance on stage. He also talked about getting reunited with the other BTS members RM, Jin, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook in 2025. “If I say 'soon', that feels like a lie. So let’s see each other again in 2025. All right? Please wait a bit. 2025, let’s see each other then. You did great. Bye!" Suga said.

BTS fans react

Reacting to the news, a fan wrote on Twitter (now X), "We love you Yoongi! We will wait for you always. Please be safe and take care of your health." A comment read, "I am crying." A Twitter user wrote, "Man, I don't even know what to say. Wasn't the thump of yesterday's show not enough???? I just wanted to hug my boy and not let go." "This breaks my heart. Stay safe Yoongi," tweeted another person.

About BTS and military enlistment

Currently, Jin and J-Hope are serving in the South Korean military. In South Korea, all able-bodied men, aged 18-28, are required to serve in the military for about two years. All BTS members were allowed to put off starting their military service until they turned 30. The group -- known for hit songs such as Blood Sweat Tears, Boy in Luv, ON and Dynamite among many others-- announced their hiatus last June and the members hope to reconvene as a unit around 2025 following their service commitment.
