Military members and their families are the only people allowed to attend the entrance ceremony. We kindly encourage fans not to attend the place in order to avoid any potential crowding-related problems. Instead, we urge that you savor these sentimental words of encouragement and goodbye in your hearts.
Additionally, we caution you against suffering consequences as a result of purchasing illicit tours or product bundles using stolen artist IP. Any attempts at commercial activities that make unlawful use of such IP will be met with appropriate action from our organization.
Until Jin completes his military service and returns, we kindly ask for your ongoing love and support. We will work to give him any assistance he requires during this period on behalf of our organization.
