Why does BTS have to go to the military?

BTS announced that all its members will fulfill their military service starting with the oldest member Jin, the band’s agency, Big Hit Music said Monday.

The announcement comes amid ongoing discussions at the National Assembly on revising the Military Service Act to exempt the seven members of BTS from military service to recognize their contribution to the country’s culture industry, or at least to partially allow their group activities during the service.


1. Discussions over BTS military service


There was a lot of chatter around BTS’ mandatory military service for past few years.

Considering their contribution to K-pop in the global market and their activities bringing economic boom to South Korea, fans were sure they receive a special exemption.

But BTS finally announced that all members will fulfill their military service, and It’s a shocking news!!

Jin, the oldest member of K-pop juggernaut BTS, will begin his compulsory military duty soon.

The agency said the other members will fulfill their duty one by one according to their individual plans, adding they thought it is the right time to make the announcement after finishing a concert in Busan on Saturday to support the city’s bid to host World Expo 2030.

The agency and the members hope they will be able to resume group activities in 2025 (after all of them finish the service), but for now it is not easy to specify exactly when it will be.

So each member will focus on individual activities for the time being according to their military service schedule.

At first in 2022 BTS stopped performing as a group so it terrified ARMY and all K-pop fans.
