BTOB's enlistment era over! All 6 members to unite for in-person fan-meet in Jan 2022
BTOB's sub-unit, BTOB 4U — with Eunkwang, Changsub, Minhyuk, and Peniel as members — continued working as they waited for Sungjae and Hyunsik, the two final BTOB members, to finish their military duties. Well, the wait is over. Sungjae and Hyunsik were officially discharged on November 14, 2021. As most of the fandom celebrated their return, fans of former member Jung Ilhoon still hoped the septet would come together as one in the future. (Ilhoon left BTOB on December 31, 2020, after being investigated for using marijuana.) However, BTOB, for now, is back as a six-member group with all the members active again.
BTOB 4U had their final sub-unit comeback in August with BTOB 4U: Outside with the song ‘Outsider’ serving as its title track that was loved by fans around the world giving BTOB members a much-needed boost as they waited patiently for their group to be reunited. Once the members returned following their discharge from the military, Hyunsik and Sungjae met fans in a YouTube live stream broadcast where they celebrated the end of their military service and for returning safely back to their fans.
