As translated by Twitter user @btsqtsarchive, J-Hope said during his live session on Sunday, “Jin hyung (elder brother) our oldest hyung went to the military. Yesterday at night I got a message from him saying ‘J-Hope answer my call’. And I was like, ‘I didn’t know it was your number’.”

Another BTS fan, @jinniesarchives, shared a video on Twitter in which J-Hope said, “Actually, yesterday night, December 31, Jin hyung called me. He said, ‘J-Hoopeeee’. I said, ‘Hyuuuuuug. How are you doing?’. He said, ‘Why didn’t you answer my call? I said, ‘Oh I didn’t know this is your number. How do I know this is your number?'”

J-Hope then said, “The moment when I hear Jin hyung’s voice, it feels nice. I think Jin hyung is fine and healthy, so I am very relieved. So don’t worry.”

Reacting to J-Hope’s live session, a fan wrote on Twitter, “I can’t even really explain how I feel… it’s so… there are tears in my eyes… my dear 2seok.” While Jin’s real name is Kim Seok-jin, J-Hope’s is Jung Ho-seok. Another person said, “I feel so happy so sad so excited so numb so many things all at the same time right now!” “Awww. So really humble. I love them so much, their relationship is so nice,” read a comment. “I’m glad he’s doing good, thank you Hobi,” tweeted another fan.

Jin began his 18 months of mandatory military service at a front-line South Korean boot camp on December 13 last year. The singer, who turned 30 last month, entered the boot camp at Yeoncheon for five weeks of basic military training together with other new conscript soldiers, as per news agency AP. After the training, he and other conscripts would be assigned to army units across the country.
