BTS singer Suga had a special interaction with fans on the online fan community Weverse before starting his military service on September 22. During this session, he shared his plans and asked fans to wait for his return in 2025. In a casual appearance wearing a white t-shirt and checkered shirt, Suga surprised fans with his shorter hair, which is quite different from the usual buzzcuts military personnel have. He humorously mentioned that even the staff had trouble recognizing him.
BTS’ Suga will join the military for 18 months
Suga had been keeping a low profile since finishing his August D tour in Seoul. He explained that he didn’t want to distract from fellow member Taehyung’s album release and had spent time with BTS members and family. Despite his upcoming 18-month absence, Suga assured fans that he had filmed plenty of content to keep the BTS Army entertained. He also mentioned that he couldn’t continue his popular drinking show, Suchwita, but had prepared content for fans to look forward to.
