“I am beginning a new journey in December and will be temporarily leaving your side to fulfill my military duty,” Jungkook wrote, per Korea JoongAng Daily. “A part of my heart feels heavy to share this news, while another part of my heart warms to think back on the precious memories I had with ARMY (BTS’ fandom).”

Later in his letter, Jungkook also said that he “promises” that he will “take the stage again when I’m back – where I always was, but grown up even more”. He added: “I will miss you in the deepest of my hearts until the day we meet again and share our stories. Stay healthy and stay safe. I love you.”

Jungkook will become the fourth members of BTS to enlist for military service, following Jin in December 2022, J-hope in April 2023 and Suga in September 2023. It is currently unclear when RM, Jimin and V will enlist.
