J.Seph von KARD has announced that he is committed to do his military service next month.
On September 21, he posted the following handwritten letter on Instagram.
Hello, this is KARD’s J.Seph (Taehyung).
In 2011, at the age of 20, I went to Seoul to begin my career as a singer and I was able to spend my precious 20s in meaningful ways.
In 2020 (October 5th) I will join the military at a slightly older age than others. Although I’m a little afraid of the new and unfamiliar environment that I will soon encounter, I am also looking forward to my life with a new identity.
I will faithfully do my duty as a Korean and proudly return to everyone’s side.
Until then, please show support and kindness to Matthew [BM], Somin and Jiwoo as KARD.
I will cherish all the love and energy I received from everyone during this time and I will be sure to stay healthy while I am away.
In addition to the letter from J.Seph, the KARD agency also released the following statement confirming the news.
Hello, this is DSP Media.
J.Seph von KARD will register for his military service as a soldier on active duty on October 5th.
