Idol members who participate in military musicals under controversy for being given special perks + get to use their phones and speak informally to officers

AKP STAFF

Controversy has arisen yet again regarding special treatment for idol soldiers, this time for those who are participating in army musicals. 

On October 17th, Channel A reported that idols who are selected to perform in the military musical have received special benefits. They stated that the idols would be allowed to receive presents from fans, use cellphones during work hours, and even spoke informally to commissioned officers and other soldiers. This discrepancy between the lives of idol soldiers and that of regular ones have resulted in yet again another controversy.

Yet no one is addressing the benefits to the military by having these "idols" perform.

Its easy to blame idol for getting those preferential treatment. However, i believe its also other people's fault (fellow soldier and senior) for still treating them as an idol and not just a soldier that they supposed to be. Ive come across comments on twitter that talk about how these ordinary soldier in awe meeting celeb during their service -- praising them non stop, asking for autograph and all. And if people hate it that much, blame military for creating musical/event that involving these celeb. Dont use them to attract people durin their service.
