S. Korea may conduct survey on BTS members' military duty

By koreatimes on

South Korea may conduct a public survey to help determine whether to grant exemption to the mandatory military service to members of the K-pop boyband BTS, officials said Wednesday. The question of active military service for the band's seven members has been a hot-button topic in South Korea as its oldest member, Jin, faces his enlistment in December, when he turns 30. Defense Minister Lee Jong-sup told lawmakers that he ordered officials to implement a survey quickly. He said his ministry will also look into various other factors like the BTS's economic effect, the importance of military service and overall national interests.
