Suga entered the Army training camp in Nonsan, located 152 kilometers south of Seoul, BigHit Music said, adding that the move is in accordance with the conscription system mandating all social service agents to undergo three weeks of basic training in the middle of their service.

Upon completion of the training, Suga will resume his responsibilities as a social service agent. His discharge is scheduled for June 2025.
