Previously in November of 2021, the National Assembly had their final thoughts on a bill to amend the Military Service Act to allow K-pop artists who have contributed to the promotion of national prestige, such as K-pop group BTS, to replace military service as art and sports personnel. 

But the bill was temporarily suspended. Notably, when asked regarding the K-pop group's possible military exemption, BTS's Jin answered, "I talked a lot with the company about the military service issue. I talked about leaving it up to the company as much as possible. The company's decision is as good as my decision."

Not long ago, HYBE (the K-pop label of BTS) explained, "Our artists are entrusting the company with issues related to military service. They have repeatedly emphasized that they will respond to the call of the country. The company is monitoring the matter very carefully. We will do our best to come to a useful decision. It is true that uncertainty causes difficulties, so we hope that a conclusion will be reached as soon as possible."

In other news, BTS is at present performing their hearts out in their concert in Las Vegas at the Allegiant Stadium. The K-pop boy group is also slated to meet with ARMYs (the fandom name of BTS) from all over the world.
