J-Hope, a member of BTS, has begun his required military duty, and on Tuesday, images of him in uniform went viral. After Jin's enlistment, J-Hope, also known as Jung Ho-seok, is the second member of BTS to sign up for the army's 18-month mandatory duty.
The rapper is a member of the 36th Infantry Division's Baekho New Corps. Now that photos from the camp have appeared online, J-Hope can be seen in the first image sporting a buzz cut and looking animated as he has a lunch with his trainees.
Following a group of Hobi and others in uniform who are flashing love symbols for his admirers, J-Hope can be seen grinning widely. J-Hope is shown holding his name card, on which he is ranked first.
J-Hope is undergoing basic military education and training for roughly five weeks, after which he will be qualified to serve in the army as an active-duty soldier, according to a Hindustan Times story.
A social media user commented on the images by writing, “Omg (Oh my God) he's looking good!” I wonder whether we'll be able to see Jhope and Jin together at any point, another social media user speculated. Another person said, “I'm happy to see this but I'll wait for hobi's update on Instagram.”
On April 18, J-Hope enrolled in the military. In an official video posted on BangtanTV, he was shown bidding goodbye to his BTS friends before reconnecting with them. Along with RM, Suga, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, Jin, who is already a member of the military, also arrived and joined the group.
According to Newsies, a South Korean news site, not only the BTS rapper but all trainees entering on April 18 were only permitted to enter the building with one automobile apiece.
The allowance was mentioned on a large LED sign that was reportedly posted above the door, and new hires were only permitted to access the secured area after displaying their notice sign.
Other BTS members will shortly begin the enlistment procedure in accordance with their own timeframes; they are all now concentrating on their separate professions, and the group won't be making a comeback until 2025.
