Korean National Defense Commission to discuss today the matter of the cultural artists’ exemption from the obligatory military service.
As per Korean law, all able-bodied men between 18-28 are bound to serve in the Korean military for about two years.
Previously, in December last year, the Korean Nation Assembly had agreed to favor the cultural artists as K-Pop megastars, promoting the country’s positive image, by enabling them to delay their military service till 30.
This had allowed BTS to postpone their military enlistment as well, especially Jin, who is the oldest of all.
What will be the outcomes of this meeting? Will the K-Pop stars be granted special exemption favor? We will keep you updated on it.
