After Big Hit Music announced the next BTS member to enlist was J-Hope, the latter revealed he would drop a solo single titled "On the Street." He released teaser photos for his upcoming single on Wednesday, March 1, taken in New York City.
J-Hope cancelled his military postponement to begin his enlistment soon, which might happen anytime this year.

The 29-year-old posed on the streets of New York City for his new music.

He reportedly applied for its termination to the Military Manpower Association, meaning he will be enlisted any time after legally deferring it for years.
"We would like to inform our fans that j-hope has initiated the military enlistment process by applying for the termination of his enlistment postponement," the label said in a statement via People. "We ask for your continued love and support for j-hope until he completes his military service and safely returns."

J-Hope will be the second member of the group to enlist after Jin did so in December 2022.
Big Hit previously announced that all of BTS's seven members would do their mandatory military service after the talks of their possible exception.
