"Jin is proud of all the armys who waited until he posts. Let's continue waiting and not spreading pics that are not posted by Jin," read a comment. "All I'm doing right now is staring at these pictures and crying." "I missed him God I missed him so much. I hope you’re staying warm and healthy," said another fan.

Jin, whose full name is Kim Seok-jin, officially enlisted for duty on December 13, 2022. According to several reports, Jin is undergoing training at a boot camp of a front-line army division in Yeoncheon, 60 kilometres north of Seoul.

Earlier this month, Bangtan TV had shared a video message of Jin which was recorded during the filming of the Korean variety show, Running Man. In the video Jin had said, “Hello everyone, this is Jin of BTS. I won’t be a civilian by the time the video is out. But I am here in front of the camera, because I wanted to leave you something, even if it is just leaving a message."

He had also said, "Whenever I am available I wish to share these videos with you. I may not be by your side, but I’ll go looking for you soon, if you just wait a little. I’ll be back soon. That’s all for today. Next time when I have the time, I’ll share another video. That’s all for now."

In South Korea, all able-bodied men aged 18-28 are required to serve in the military for about two years. All BTS members had been allowed to put off starting their military service until they turned 30.

Other members -- RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook -- plan to carry out their military service based on their own individual plans. The group, which debuted in 2013, had said last year that they hope to reconvene as a unit around 2025 following their service commitment.
