    Jin of Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, will begin his mandatory military service next month.
    The Defense Ministry said on Thursday that Jin will enter boot camp in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi Province on Dec. 13 and undergo five weeks of basic military training before being assigned to an Army unit.
    BTS were decorated in 2018 with the Order of Cultural Merit for elevating the global image of Korea through their worldwide success, and were allowed to postpone their military service until they reached the age of 30.
    Jin, the oldest member of the boy band, initially asked to postpone his draft until he turns 30 in December but canceled the request in October.
    The ministry said that it will provide BTS members with opportunities to take part in events of national interest should they wish to do so while serving in the military.
