Jin, the oldest member of K-pop supergroup BTS, will be an Olympic torchbearer at the Paris games after recently completing his mandatory military service.

The 31-year-old singer, who finished his 18-month military service last month, is set to represent South Korea in the torch relay, aiming to spread a message of “harmony” and “peace.” Jin, along with other torchbearers, will visit various historic sites in the host country. The specific schedule has not been disclosed.

The torch relay began in April. Jin began his military service at a front-line South Korean military boot camp in late 2022. His fellow BTS members — Jung Kook, V, Jimin, Suga, RM, and J-Hope — are currently serving their military duties.

A day after his release from military duty, Jin hosted the annual BTS debut anniversary celebration FESTA in Seoul, which included food tastings, performances, and dance challenges.
