BTS member J-Hope enlisted for mandatory military service on South Korea on April 18, 2023
BTS' official agency Big Hit Music has released a statement regarding the J-Hope military enlistment.
Taking to Weverse on Tuesday, the agency urged ARMY to refrain from sending letters and gifts to the singer.
The statement read: “Thank you to all the fans who always give their love to BTS. Thanks to your kind consideration and support this past April, BTS member J-Hope has entered the military and is now performing his duties responsibly at the training camp.”
The Agency further wrote: “Thank you for showing your interest and support on the day he entered. Below is additional information for fans to keep note of throughout J-Hope’s military service period
“Please refrain from sending letters and gifts even after he has finished his military recruit training and gets stationed at his military base,” they continued.
Big Hit Music added: “If a large number of letters and gifts from the fans arrive at the center all at once, it would be difficult to store them and they could be easily lost. We ask that you please refrain from sending anything by mail. BIGHIT MUSIC will assist in making sure that J-Hope is able to personally see any kind and warm messages fans leave on Weverse using the hashtag #Dear_j-hope_from_ARMY.”
The agency also requested J-Hope fans to refrain from visiting the military camp and wrote: “We would also like to ask for your cooperation during J-Hope’s recruit training graduation ceremony. In order to prevent any issues that might occur from crowding, we ask fans to please refrain from visiting the site. Instead, we ask you to keep your heartwarming words of support and farewell in your hearts.”
