[BBANGYA NEWS｜Jisoo Lee] Six out of seven members of BTS will be taking the same graduate business school by this autumn.
Big Hit Entertainment revealed that Jimin and V will join MBA(Master of Business Administration) in Media Advertising at Hangyang Cyber University this September. RM, SUGA and J-Hope have all enrolled for the program this March while Jin has been taking the program since 2017. Some suspect that their enrollment may be an attempt to delay enlistment, but the agency stated the members chose to take MBA based solely on their own will.
Under the current Korean military service law, a person can file application for postponement of enlistment if he is already registered to graduate school and is under 26. Also, anyone who has to enlist has to do so by the age of 28. Jin who was born in 1992 is turning 28 years old this year, so he should enlist by the end of this year as the law states. Jin already shared his opinion about enlistment in the press conference of the fourth studio album ‘MAP OF THE SOUL:7’ the band had this February. In the conference, Jin answered that he thinks “military service is a bounden duty” and that he’s ready to serve the country at any time. The next BTS member facing enlistment is SUGA who was born in 1993.
