BTS : the members are going to have to do their military service
Bad news for fans of BTS : despite their worldwide success, Jungkook, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin and V will, like all South Koreans from 18 to 35 years old “valid”, have to do the compulsory military service. The members of the group of K-pop may be absent for two years…
This is not because Jungkook, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin and V are chained to the success and dance fans around the world that they are going to be privileged. The members of the group of K-pop BTS will indeed do their military service, like all other South Koreans “valid”. This was announced by the minister of culture, south Korean Park Yang-woo, who said that he would have wanted that they should be exempt.
The members of the group BTS will have to do their military service “In the case of BTS, I would have personally liked to be able to exempt it, but the military administration and the department of national defence wish to reduce the possibilities of exemption from military service“, he announced on 21 November at the forum of ministers of culture organized by UNESCO in Paris. A decision that, for the Korean army, aims to “increase the fairness and reduce the number of exemptions because of the shortage of labor.” It should be noted that men in south korea from 18 to 35 years of age must complete 21 months of military service, a minimum of, because of the tensions between South Korea and its Northern neighbors. An absence of 2 years on the music scene ?
While the group of K-pop announced at the end of August her desire to make a break to take a little vacation, so that’s another bad news for fans, who are going to have to stay a minimum of two years without new music or concerts… In the meantime, they will still be able to listen to their albums in a loop. Courage !
