OMG my heart.” “I knew it. When he said he will give us a gift before going, I knew it would be a song,” read a comment.
A person wrote, “They be toying with my heart like there’s no tomorrow. I need a break from ‘Hello, This is BIGHIT MUSIC’.” “This is probably what Hobi meant when he said ‘last present before enlistment’,” a Twitter user said. “Oh, man. The beginning of March is gonna be rough, isn’t it?” posted another fan.
J-Hope to enlist in Army
Earlier, in the day BigHit Music confirmed that J-Hope has started his military enlistment process.
