All fans are eagerly awaiting BTS’s upcoming Yet to Come concert in Busan. In the midst of all this, RM and J-Hope have given everyone a little hint on what to expect from the upcoming event, the first being the song ‘Run BTS’. On October 8, 2022, the Septet once again proved their presence at The Fact Music Awards 2022 with seven awards including a ‘Daesang’ or grand award for the fifth year in a row. As the members took to the stage seven times, J-Hope revealed in one of the speeches that the group worked hard by ‘running’ forward. Not only that, but group leader RM was also seen enjoying some hilarious moves that the Army now speculates are a clue to the choreography of ‘Run BTS’.
Speaking of Run BTS, it’s one of three songs the Grammy Award winners added to their anthology album Proof. It’s a breakaway track that sees the group members overcoming all odds and struggling on a nearly decade-long journey of ‘running’ forward with their dreams. We also get to hear one of the verses where Suga raps about how the group has no idea how they became such a big hit since all they’ve done for the last 10 years is run hard.
When asked for a hint for the Busan concert, Hobi said, “It might be a bit difficult” to Namjoon.

BTS military enlistment
Another hot topic of discussion in recent weeks is BTS’s military enlistment, which has a big question mark attached to it even now. Latest reports suggest that the South Korean military may force the Septet to join mandatory military assignments. For the inexperienced, the group is made up of RM, Jin, Jimin, V, Jungkook, J-Hope, and Suga. Now, one of the most debated topics in South Korea is back in the news. Speaking of Jin, the oldest member of the group, he will be turning 30 this December and he is already expected to face enlistment early next year. According to the latest reports, Lee Ki Sik, the commissioner of the Military Human Resources Administration, recently told lawmakers that it is “desirable” for BTS to carry out their military duties and ensure fairness in the country’s military service.
Under South Korean law, all able-bodied men must complete 18 to 21 months of military service. However, the law also establishes special exemptions for dancers, musicians or athletes who have won top prizes in specific competitions to enhance national prestige.
