Jin, the band's oldest member of BTS, would begin his mandatory military service, the K-pop group had stated in October 2022. The announcement put an end to the discussion regarding whether they should be excluded from the approximately two-year mandatory military service requirement.

After everyone has completed their time in the South Korean military, the group intends to work on various projects before coming back together in 2025.
