K-pop band BTS can postpone military service after South Korea passes new law

K-pop fans can inhale a sigh of help, with BTS setting down deep roots – for a few more years, at least.

Fans have since quite a while ago stressed that the kid band, apparently the greatest on the planet, could see their prosperity wrecked by South Korea’s obligatory military assistance. Practically all capable men in the nation are needed to serve in the military for year and a half when they are 28.

Be that as it may, on Tuesday, the parliament passed a bill permitting pop stars -, for example, BTS – to concede their administration.

Already, the law permitted uncommon exclusions for top craftsmen, competitors, and performers – for example, the individuals who have won traditional music rivalries – yet not top K-pop stars. The reexamined law currently permits exclusions for the individuals who “excel in popular culture and art,” as indicated by a notification from the National Assembly.

The changed law added that the particular measures for the exclusion would be chosen through an presidential order.

The most established BTS part, Jin, turns 28 on Friday. Had the bill not been passed, he would have needed to enroll before the year’s over. Presently, the law will get him two additional years.

The revision comes not long after BTS’ single “Dynamite,” delivered in August, bested the US Billboard Hot 100 – making them the primary South Korean pop act to make a big appearance at No. 1. A month ago, the band was selected for a Grammy Award.

BTS’ mark, Big Hit Entertainment, has recently said in proclamations that military assistance was a “duty” the band would satisfy.

One of the nation’s greatest K-pop stars, G-Dragon, finished 20 months of administration a year ago, leaving the military’s central command to major fanfare.
