aIgor! We knew it was coming after BTS members made cryptic and emotional remarks to fans at their concert in Busan on Saturday. and pop culture rise to fame, should the world’s biggest boy band be exempt from military service? All 7 members, including the eldest Jin, who has finished working on his solo single, will be enlisting. BigHit Music said in a statement, “We are proud that they now have time to explore their own unique interests and fulfill their obligations by serving the country they call home. “‘Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)’ is more than a track from their latest album.
Believe it or not, BTS leader RM told the ARMY fanbase. His foodie ARMY needs a place to relive the best moments and cry on each other’s shoulders. While eating and drinking, of course.

About that BTS Bon Voyage Hawaii episode…
Local ARMYs are making pilgrimages to the locations featured in the episode, even without signs that BTS were there. These include:
- Haleiwa’s Teddy’s Bigger Burger
- Honos Shrimp Truck in Haleiwa
- Laie Polynesian Cultural Center Luau
And these comments on our Instagram post. Shout out to the following ARMY readers:
If you want to revisit other spots they’ve been to, nothing glamorous, but Domino’s in Alakea/Merchant where Suga, RM and V dined, or Kim’s BBQ (actually Yummy’s but now under new ownership) same type of food) Jimin and JK dined at Coco Marina. I was going to mention Seouljung at the Waikiki Resort Hotel that Suga & V went to, but it was closed. Or you can order the Huli Chicken Plate from Mike’s Huli Huli Chicken and eat it at the same location on Kualoa Beach. Then have lunch with a game of shoe/slipper kicks 😆
At Kualoa Ranch, their photo hangs on the celebrity wall from when they took the ATV Tour.
@teddysburgers Also check out Hono’s Shrimp Truck in Haleiwa or Haleiwa. BTS visited them. You can see their signature there too.
Boraje, ARMY, until 2025!
