    Should BTS serve in the Korean military? Take the poll in the video and discuss.

    "If BTS served in the military, will they still be BTS or they'll be ARMY???"

    Not that I know BTS, but judging by how they embrace their culture a lot, they might feel embarrassed or uncomfortable being exempt from the military. They also come across as very humble, so they'd probably prefer to participate (especially since it is the law).

    Bts said it themselves that they will serve in the military whatever the circumstance is, ARMY’s will be waiting for them whatever happens 😊❤️

    To be honest, me and all the Armys will feel sad when BTS goes to the military. Maybe, if they will be exempted from the serving in the army but I definitely can say that they will continue to serve in the army like all the normal men in Korea.

    Don’t y’all find it weird how you international Kpop stans are more upset about this than actual Koreans who had served in the military?

    In my opinion, I'm a person of standards. So to me, if their law is for every man to serve two years, then every man should serve 2 years. Period. All these exemptions just ruin the whole purpose of the law. However, since there are exceptions for people who represent Korea well, and if Korean citizens THEMSELVES dont really care whether bts serves or not, then I do not see the point in being angry about it.

    International people can't actually have a say in this, cause its THEIR LAW, it doesn't matter who you are as long as you're a South Korea citizen. Sure, BTS has break boundaries that no other group ever did, but rooted doen, they're still South Koreans. And BigHit actually put out a statement that they will serve like any other citizen.

    Can they just go to the military site as a group? I mean they dont have a large distant of age right? They just can wait till jungkook can go with them and have a military service together

    They're all different ages so it'll take 8 years for them to come back. I don't think I'll survive without them.

    You know what puts people off about this topic? The word 'mandatory'.

    I think BTS should go. But I’ll pray for them to come back safely

    BTS is much bigger now and the influence they have right now is unbelievable.
    They actually have a BIG contribution to Korea's economy

    It's just politics. No matter how high tge achievement of bangtan, me as a fan, as an army, they should. It's their responsibility. And they didn't deny it either. Probably jin will enter much very soon but we will still support everything and everyone. We will wait! 💜💜

    I sorry if I'm wrong but Bts confirmed that they will join the army. It's their choice really

    It will be really IRONIC if they didnt serve in the Army

    If I'm not mistaken, the congressman never specifically said that BTS needs to be exempt from the mandatory military service; a lot of translators on twitter emphasised that. He said that K-pop stars, actors, b-boys, athletes, and others who represent the country well internationally should be considered for exemptions, because currently only classical musicians and dancers, and world class athletes who represent South Korea on a global stage and achieve high results receive exemptions. That is, criteria for receiving exemptions should be broadened to reflect contemporary culture.

    I wish they can serve together, instead of them having a specific date, because if they all serve together for the same amount of time, they can come back and continue be BTS together! If that is allowed :(
