Jin joined the military in December 2022, while J-Hope and Suga signed up earlier this year. Fans have flooded social media with reactions to the rare sight of the seven members together.

It is an emotional day for fans of the South Korean superstars. All seven members of BTS will be in the military for the next six months at least. Eldest member Jin, who enlisted first, is slated to complete his mandatory service in June 2024. All the seven members of BTS are expected to be back by mid-2025.

Despite it being a depressing time for their fans, the ARMY, the two of the youngest members of the K-pop group ensured that they infused some fun into this sombre moment. On Monday morning, the day V aka Kim Taehyung and Kim Namjoon were to join the South Korean military, the former did something that made fans tear up and laugh out loud at the same time.

Taehyung took to Weverse to share a goodbye post for fans, along with some photos and videos from his personal collection. The singer also included a screenshot of a video chat with Jungkook, in which both of them are seen bare-bodied. They are seen wearing sunglasses in the screenshot which also revealed their shaved heads, which shows it was from a recent video call.

V wrote on the photo, "Hyung is going first. Enlist safely tomorrow."
