It was found on the 1st that the Presidential Transition Committee of President-elect Yoon Suk-Yeol is reviewing a plan for exempting the group BTS from active duty service. 

On the 2nd, Ahn Cheol-soo, chairman of the transition committee, will personally visit BTS' agency to hear related opinions and discuss ways to foster the entertainment industry.
 In the context of the controversy surrounding the so-called ‘BTS Act on Special Cases for Military Service’, which heated up the political world during his presidential campaign, Ahn said, “BTS is well qualified for alternative service.”

According to the Munhwa Ilbo coverage, Chairman Ahn and members of the Social Welfare and Culture Division of the Insu Committee will visit the headquarters of BTS' agency Hybe on the 2nd. Based on the three draft amendments to the Special Military Service Act pending in the National Assembly, the transition committee is said to have discussed intensively on ways to prepare alternatives to military service, such as service as art and sports personnel or volunteer work, only for artists of popular culture who are recognized for their so-called “improvement of national prestige”. 

It is known that Chairman Ahn and the members of the subcommittee will hear Hybe's opinions on this at a meeting. The transition committee explained that the BTS military service issue and the strategy to foster the entertainment industry are key.

“We will discuss with Hybe based on internal discussions on BTS’ military service issue,” said an official from the transition committee.

Sh*tting all over us

Don't try to distract us by using idols. Politicians should cut down on using KPOP and focus on doing their job right instead. Meanwhile they're here and there f*cking up everyone's businesses and distracting us away by using KPOP

Gan Cheolsoo again doing the shovel work ㅋㅋ (t/n: not gonna go in detail about this comment, but Ahn Cheolsoo got into a controversy after the People's Party representative election were found to be rigged and he earned the nickname due to that)

The is the justice and common sense that the #2-nams asked for! (t/n: derogatory term for people who voted conservative/People's Party, mostly men. #2 = because they were opposition party they were #2)

Stop touching them and leave them alone. I'm worried that them creating this blacklist will soon ruin KPOP. The national prestige is already falling because of Yoon Suk-Yeol and Kim Gun-Hee. Do you think how funny this looks to the international political sphere? In this 'developed' Korean country, you can find shamanism, Julie's suspicions, Thesis plagiarism and not doing anything about Metoo. A national failure (T/n: again, not gonna go into details, but Julie's suspicions and Thesis plagiarism were 2 big scandals of Kim Gun Hee accusing him to have plagiarized his university thesis and him using the nickname Julie in nightclubs before)

I don't think this is right. Even if you enlist anyway, compared to other general soldiers, the army will take special care of them and show them more consideration and this should be more than enough. Military exemption? The standards for it is actually so fuzzy that no matter what they do, it'll have side effects

The Presidential Transition Committee will visit the headquarters of BTS' agency Hybe tomorrow (2nd).

A representative of the transition committee said in a phone call with YTN that tomorrow (the 2nd), Ahn Cheol-soo, the transition chairperson and members of the social welfare subcommittee of the transition committee, will visit the BTS agency directly to discuss Korea's K-culture, which is emerging as a cultural powerhouse.

However, some media reports that the group BTS will be examining exemptions from military service which are not a matter for the transition committee to consider.

At the same time, the BTS side emphasized that there is no reason to bring up the subject, and that the members have also expressed their intention to voluntarily perform military service.
