WARTABANJAR.COM, BANJARMASIN- The controversy over BTS getting an exemption from military service is still a hot topic in Korea.

This is in line with the growing popularity of BTS in foreign countries, which is causing Ginseng Country officials to suggest that BTS get a special exception regarding their military service.

South Korea’s Minister of National Defense, Lee Jong Sub, has commented, according to Allkpop, on Monday (1/8/2022), on BTS getting exemptions from special military service.

Minister Lee Jong Sub stated that after deliberations, the South Korean Ministry of National Defense concluded that the ministry could help them maintain training and performance for the benefit of the country without violating the principles of justice and equality.

It can be interpreted that the ministry will protect BTS to perform as much as possible without compromising their national duty of military service while the group is unlikely to receive a special exemption.

Currently, athletes who have won Olympic or gold medals at the Asian Games are exempt from military service.

There is an ongoing debate about whether world-renowned artists like BTS should also be excluded.

BTS members legally postponed their military service until the age of 30 when amendments to the Military Service Law were announced in June of last year.

But Jin, the oldest member of BTS, will have to enlist by the end of this year under the current military service law unless additional amendments are passed. (multiple sources)
