There are suggestions in Korea to change the laws about military service which could possibly mean that a Kpop group as big as BTS would be exempt from military service. Read more here.
One of the big misconceptions about military service is that “everyone has to do it” so therefore Kpop groups should as well. But when you dig a bit deeper you realise there are already lots of exemptions and not all seem that fair. For example, classical musicians can be exempt when they win certain prizes. Should one type of music be seen as more important than another? The more we have been learning about exemptions the more we have changed our own opinions about whether all idols should have to do it. Watch the video to see us talk about it!
