video: BTS members J-Hope, Jin, Suga, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook are being sorely missed by fans. It’s been a long time since the audience saw the septet together. The Korean stars have to complete their mandatory military service, so you won’t see them perform or release music together for a few years. Jin, the eldest member of the group, has already started recruiting and other members are expected to follow soon. But the more the ARMY is missing him, the more the bandmates are also feeling it.
Recently, at the 37th Golden Disc Awards, BTS won the Daesang Award for the sixth time in a row, as well as J-Hope’s “Thai Fan Support with BAOJI” award. As the K-pop star took the stage to receive the award, he started cheering loudly for his bandmates and his fans – the military.
While accepting the award, J-Hope shared an update with ARMY revealing that he and his fellow members had recently gathered together for drinks. Jin, who is serving his military term, of course missed the reunion. Before ending his speech, J-Hope said something that got BTS fans emotional. The South Korean star said that he can’t wait for all seven members (J-Hope, Jin, Suga, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook) to get back on stage together.

Here’s the ARMY’s response to J-Hope’s speech:
After announcing a hiatus from their group activities in June, the BTS members are focusing on solo projects. Speaking of J-Hope, the K-pop star is enjoying success in his solo career as well. He first released his solo album ‘Jack in the Box’, which broke several records, and then became the first K-pop artist to headline the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago. Most recently, on New Year’s Eve, she gave a spectacular live performance at Time Square hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
