Jungkook talking about his military training

During one of his Instagram live, Jungkook said, “1.5 years is pretty short. If you guys just keep doing as you're doing right now, it'll be fine. We have prepared a lot of things for you. I was actually working on something but I only managed to finish half of it. I also ended up cutting my hair pretty quickly so I kind of regretted it but yeah.. just wait for like a year and a half when I come back okay? Ah I gave a big spoiler, didn't I?"
