BTS's SUGA Commences Military Training Amid Global Acclaim

In a move that has captured the attention of fans worldwide, BTS's SUGA has officially entered the Nonsan Army Training Center to commence his basic military training.

This significant step marks the continuation of his mandatory military service, which he began as a public service worker in September of last year.


SUGA, known for his sharp lyrics and dynamic production, has been serving as a social service worker due to the current enlistment regulations that allow individuals assigned to public service to start their work before undergoing basic training.

This option is chosen by some enlisters to secure a position that aligns with their preferences, such as being close to home.

The Nonsan Training Center, located in South Chungcheong Province, is now the temporary residence of the artist, where he will undergo a three-week intensive basic military training program.

Following this, SUGA will return to his assigned public service position to complete the remainder of his duties.

The news of SUGA's enlistment has been met with mixed emotions from the BTS ARMY, who have expressed both pride in his commitment to fulfilling his national duties and longing for his return to the music scene.

"SUGA's dedication to his country and his art is truly inspiring," shared a fan on social media.

"We miss him, but we know he's serving a greater purpose."Big Hit Music, the agency representing BTS, has confirmed SUGA's enlistment and stated that his discharge is scheduled for June 2025.

As fans count down the days until his return, they continue to celebrate his musical achievements and the indelible mark he has left on the global music industry.

​SUGA's journey from the stages of sold-out arenas to the disciplined environment of military training is a poignant reminder of the multifaceted lives of South Korea's beloved idols.

As he dons the military uniform, his legacy as a musician, producer, and global icon remains unwavering.
