BigHit Music released a statement on Wednesday (Jan. 4) asking fans to not send gifts and letters to Jin via mail while he’s serving in the South Korean military.

The open letter to ARMY, entitled “Notice to Jin’s mandatory military services period,” explains that Jin is stationed in a training center specifically for military training along with regular military personnel. It would be difficult to store all the letters and gifts received from fans at the center at once. They could easily be lost. We ask that you refrain from sending any mail.

Instead, the label offered an alternative way for fans to show Jin their love: “BIGHIT MUSIC will assist in making sure Jin is able to personally see any kind and warm messages fans leave on Weverse using the hashtag #Dear_Jin_from_ARMY.”

In the note, BigHit goes on to ask ARMY not to send any gifts or mail to the BTS member after he moves on from the training location to the base where he will be stationed next, and also to refrain from attending his upcoming graduation ceremony.

The letter concluded, “We ask you for your continued love & support for Jin until his military service is over.” “Our company will also try to provide all support necessary during this time. Thank you .”

Just prior to beginning his government-mandated military service, Jin and his new buzz cut got a warm send-off from the six other members of BTS, which the band shared in an intimate video with fans. The Yeoncheon army base where Jin is stationed for training happens to be just 10 miles away from the Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea.
