BTS' Suga to serve as public service worker for his mandatory military duties - reports
As BTS' Jin begins his military service, another member of the K-pop supergroup is gearing up for his mandatory enlistment. According to reports, Suga has been assigned to serve as a public service worker for his military duties.
On Dec. 13, the Asia Business Daily cited military sources who said the BTS member earned approval to serve as a social service agent.
While the reason behind this has not been disclosed, it is speculated that Suga was assigned to the task because of the surgery he got in 2020 for a labrum tear in his left shoulder.
BIGHIT MUSIC responded to the reports, saying, "BTS members plan to serve in the military sequentially according to their own plans. It is difficult to confirm the artist's personal information.
As per the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism's enlistment deferment, Suga will have until the end of next year to begin his mandatory service duties.
The BTS member postponed his enlistment until 2023 and will be the next in the group to serve, following Jin, who began his duties on Dec. 13 at the army boot camp in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi.
