Big Hit Entertainment has revealed an official statement regarding BTS Jin’s military enlistment. On September 2, Big Hit submitted a stock report to the Financial Services Commission for listing on KOSPI.
The details of the stock report released through the Financial Supervisor Service’s electronic disclosure system included contents regarding military enlistment for the members.
The section that received the most attention was for oldest member Jin’s enlistment period. The stock report stated, “BTS is composed of members born in 1992 to 1997 and are all eligible for active duty service. We believe that it is possible to postpone Jin’s enlistment date until the end of 2021.”
Big Hit added, “To prepare for events such as military enlistment, sickness or accidents, we are continuously expanding our merchandise and video content sales that do not involve any direct artist activities.”
In order to minimize the risk of reduction in sales due to the planned vacancy of major artists, we are reviewing various fields such as pre-production contents such as album video contents and flexible artist management through active members.
