The possibility of postponing military service by group BTS has increased.

On the 1st, the National Assembly held a plenary meeting and decided on the so-called'BTS Military Service Act Amendment', a military service corporation that includes excellent people in the field of popular culture and arts as a target who can postpone the conscription of the military.

Accordingly, the government will prepare a Presidential Decree so that pop culture artists who have received a badge of culture can defer enlistment until the age of 30 when recommended by the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The amendment to the Military Service Act passed on that day contained the content that the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism recognized that it contributed greatly to enhancing the status and dignity of the Republic of Korea, and recommended that the excellent military service in the field of popular culture and arts can be delayed to the age of 30.

Following the passage of the bill, the Ministry of Culture is reviewing the revision of the Presidential Decree, which targets postponement of popular cultural artists who have received cultural medals or presidential citations. Since BTS received the Medal of Culture in 2018, it is highly likely to be subject to military service postponement.

Bulletproof Boy Scouts set the first record as a Korean singer by simultaneously winning first place in the US Billboard main single chart'Hot 100' and'Billboard 200' with the digital single'Dynamite' released on the 21st of last month. The recently released'Life gose on' was the first Korean song to be ranked #1 in the Billboard Hot 100. Billboard said, "It is the first time that non-English songs have been ranked #1 in the Hot 100 after Lewis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's Spanish song'Despacito'."

Thanks to the bill, it is expected that BTS will benefit. In particular, Jin was born in December 1992 and is about to enlist in December, so it is highly likely that he will benefit from the revised law first.

BTS recently attended a global press conference to commemorate the release of their new album'BE' and received questions about military service obligations. Jin said, "As a young man in Korea, military service is a natural problem. If there is a call from the country, I will respond at any time. I talk frequently with the members. I plan to respond to military service."
