Suga is the first member of BTS to hit the road and return to the United States since the group announced their hiatus to focus on solo projects and honor their respective commitments to the military.
V, Jimin, RM, Jung Kook, J-Hope and Suga were all on hand in December when the group's oldest member, Jin, reported for basic training. Although he is keeping busy honoring his country, in January it was revealed that Jin won the military talent show.
The 30-year-old K-pop star was reportedly involved in teaching his team the dance moves that helped earn them the top spot, and as a reward, they were given an extra day of vacation.
In October, the group's music label, Big Hit, confirmed that Jin would be the first to report for service. While Jin is away, the other members of BTS will also prep for their service and promote and release their solo projects. At this time, it has not been announced which member of the group will enlist next or hit the road for a tour.
