BTS’ Kim Seok Jin, aka Jin, has surprised fans on his birthday as the singer revealed he has been granted an early promotion in the South Korean Army, courtesy of his exceptional performance in the military. The singer turned 31 on Monday (December 4) and took the opportunity to thank fans for their unwavering love and support while also sharing the “important” update.
On the web platform Weverse, Jin posted a heartfelt note to express his sincere gratitude to fans for sending heartwarming wishes his way. The eldest member of BTS also apologized for not being able to hold a livestream this year, something that he has traditionally done in the past. In his letter, the Epiphany singer said he regrets not holding a livestream with his fans on this special day but asked them to rest assured as he is having a good time with his military pals.
Jin also shared that he has attained the rank of sergeant in the South Korean military, much to the profound happiness of BTS fans. Additionally, he went on to address the enlistment of fellow members—RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook—in his message to the ARMYs (BTS Fans).
