BTS Allowed To Postpone Their Military Enlistment

Here’s an interesting twist, South Korea has just changed a law that made it mandatory for males in South Korea to enroll in the military and serve at least 20 months before the age of 20.

A new law is granting a two-year deferment which was done to help the oldest BTS member, Kim Seok-jin, who turns 28 this week.

Now BTS will have to serve in the military at some point before they turn 30, but there are exceptions for South Korean Olympic athletes who win medals and interestingly Korean musicians who are recognized internationally by being awarded for their art.

Note, BTS is nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
