KUALA LUMPUR, June 13 — ARMY rejoice! BTS is back together again!

While the popular K-Pop boyband will not exactly be reuniting on stage for now, all seven members of the popular K-Pop boyband were gathered together again to celebrate eldest member Jin being officially discharged from his mandatory military service.

Later, BTS’s official social media shared an update of all seven members celebrating together, including SUGA.

Jin held a short solo livestream on fan platform Weverse, where he expressed his gratitude to the members, company, and fans for welcoming him back warmly.

“I’m normally quite handsome, but I cried a lot during the ceremony. So my eyes are swollen,” he said.

“The members came to congratulate me and when I walked into the company building all the staff held a huge sign with champagne and balloons for me.

“I was so happy that I cried. I cried twice! Even though I said I wasn’t gonna cry.”

The 31-year-old is set to hold a special three-hour event in Seoul today where 1,000 lucky fans will be able to share a hug with, and he will later perform songs on request for 3,000 others.

In the livestream, Jin said that the company had originally suggested a smaller number of fans but he insisted on reaching out to more and they agreed on 1,000 people who won through a Weverse raffle.

“I said I have to hug as many people as possible...This is something that the company and I prepared with good intention, so please understand.”

The next member to be discharged will be J-hope in October and the rest of the members will complete their service in June next year.
