In a recent live session through Weverse, RM of the popular K-pop group BTS, discussed his transformation with a buzz cut. While talking about the buzz cut, RM mentioned that it has been almost 12 years since he’s had a haircut this short. He also discussed alcohol, saying that he’s been drinking a lot recently, but he should cut back a bit. Jokingly, he mentioned that he won’t be able to drink soon, indicating that he’s likely to soon enlist in the military.
The military enlistment is mandatory for all male South Korean citizens, and the other members of BTS have already started their enlistment processes. Last December, the oldest member, Jin, was the first to enlist, and in April, J-Hope enlisted. SUGA recently canceled the postponement of his enlistment and announced that he will soon begin the process of fulfilling his military duties.
While the buzz cut was a dramatic change, it seems to have been well-received by fans, who complimented RM’s head shape. Fans have also expressed their sadness at the fact that they won’t be able to see RM for a while, as he will be away fulfilling his military duties.
The buzz cut signifies a major change for RM, and it may be a way for him to prepare himself for his upcoming military enlistment. RM has been part of BTS since the start of the group, and his absence will be strongly felt. Although fans will miss him, they understand the importance of military service.
RM’s buzz cut and hint at his upcoming military enlistment have been met with both sadness and support from fans. The members of BTS are part of the K-pop industry’s “Big Three” groups, and their absence will affect the music industry in South Korea. However, their fans understand that they must fulfill their military duties, and will continue to support the group and RM during his absence.
