It’s Tuesday, December 12th. I’m Tetris and this is Billboard News. Today’s show is pretty jam-packed so I won’t waste any time because this first story is gonna be hard for me to get through.
Say it ain’t so! The remainder of our men of BTS are heading to the military and their goodbye messages have us in pieces. No, seriously, where’s the tissue? BTS is officially on hiatus until 2025 and today is really hard, okay? A couple of days ago, RM touched ARMY in their souls with his letter stating in part “The day has come. I believe this will be some strange and new period of inspiration and learning for all of us. It’s scary, but during that vague time is there anything else that’s comforting? That’s probably your love.” Okay, I can get through this. I mean, Jin hilariously commented, “Welcome. It’s your first time in the military, right?” BTS’ youngest member Jung Kook said goodbye on Weverse, and you already know I was a puddle when Jimin also emotionally said goodbye with his clean-shaven look. Those two enlisted as buddies together. V posted a note to Weverse saying, “Actually I’m really sad that I can’t make happy memories with my ARMY for the time being. I’ll be back after 18 months of being healthy, so take care of your ARMY and if you’re looking for something to be happy about every day, cheers! I’m here!” BTS shared a photo of all seven members reunited before the big day. We’ll miss you guys but we’ll be right here when you’re back in 2025.
