BTS may be in military service when their LEGO Ideas set releases

Unless the LEGO Ideas BTS set releases in 2025, the band will be temporarily broken up when the upcoming model launches. 

The seven members of the South Korean band BTS – Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook – will reportedly enlist in South Korea’s military as required by law soon, temporarily breaking up the band that is to be reformed around 2025. 

The law states that all able-bodied men enlist by the time they turn 30 and serve for about two years, according to The New York Times and the BBC. One member is reported to serve starting in December, once they turn 30 with the others to follow suit.

The timing of this may be especially unfortunate according to a listing that suggests the upcoming LEGO Ideas BTS “Dynamite” model will release in 2023 when multiple members of the band will be unavailable and serving in the military. 

At the very least, it seems likely that should the LEGO BTS model be released in 2023, it will stay on shelves for a few years, looking at the current LEGO Ideas retirement schedule. This could potentially give the band and its fans time to enjoy the model once they have reformed.

    Hallo liebes Brick Fanaics Team!

    Danke, dass Sie uns auf dem Laufenden halten. Aber es stimmt nicht, dass die Band vorübergehend aufgelöst wird. Die Mitglieder werden zwar als Gruppe nicht auftreten können, aber die Band besteht weiterhin und es werden auch weiterhin bandspezifische Sendungen und Produkte erscheinen. Das LEGO-Set könnte, z.B. so ein Produkt sein. Wichtig wäre nur, dass der Lizenzvertrag bereits for dem Antritt des ersten Mitglieds zum Militärdienst abgeschlossen wird. Wenn LEGO sich die Rechte bereits gesichert hat, dann wäre es für die Fans sicherlich ein kleines Trostpflaster wenn das Dynamite-Set so früh wie möglich erscheint.

    Liebe Grüße

    Raya Miller
