BTS' Jin will begin his military service on December 13.

South Korean newspaper Aju Business Daily confirmed the report Thursday (24 November), citing  military sources.

Jin will be sent after five weeks of training at boot camp, the  article stated.

BTS' agency, HYBE, and the South Korean defence ministry did not confirm the report.

In a social media post last week, Jin hinted at a "front-line" job.

Last month, Big Hit Music confirmed that all BTS members will fulfil their necessary military service in  the next few years.

The firm said that the band's eldest member, Jin, will retract his conscription request at the end of the month and begin conscription.

Jung Kook, Jimin, V, Suga, RM, and j-Hope want to join the military, the company told financial regulators.

In September, Busan's mayor urged South Korea's president to exempt BTS from military service so they can assist the city's bid to host the  World Expo in 2030.

Park Heong-joon informed Yoon Suk-yeol that "without fixing the military service issue, BTS pushing Busan's Expo bid could be impossible."

South Korean Defense Minister Suh Wook indicated it would be "tough" to extend this alternate programme to BTS owing to "fairness on fulfilling necessary military duty."

All able-bodied Korean men must serve 18 to 22 months in the military, per South Korean legislation.
