Suga of BTS to start military service on Friday
Suga of K-pop supergroup BTS will begin his mandatory military service on Friday, September 22, according to his label.
Big Hit Music announced the development on Sunday, noting that no official events will occur in line with it.
The entertainment company asked fans to refrain from visiting Suga at his workplace during the period of his service.
"Please convey your warm regards and encouragement in your hearts only," Suga's label said. "We ask for your continued love and support for Suga until he completes his service and returns. Our company will also strive to provide all the support he needs during this time."
Big Hit Music also cautioned fans against unauthorized tours or package products illegally using the artist's intellectual property during his service period.
Suga will be the third member of BTS to fulfill his mandatory military service, following his bandmates Jin and J-Hope.
BTS members are expected to reconvene by 2025 after their military service commitment.
