Survey shows 78% of participants agree to BTS opting for alternative service to fulfill military obligations

AKP STAFF

A survey has revealed public opinion on BTS's military obligations. 

On April 6, Dispatch teamed up with Macromill Embrain to conduct a survey on the "public awareness of special cases on military service." The participants included 1000 South Korean individuals in total with their age spanning from 14 to 59. 

Among the participants, 91% and 95% stressed the importance of promoting national prestige and cultural promotion, respectively. Meanwhile, 58% of the participants selected BTS as a figure that has highly contributed to the development of both national prestige and cultural promotion. 

In addition, 89% of participants agreed that there should be benefits to figures who have made large-scale contributions to the above two sectors. More specifically, 78% of the participants agreed that cultural agents (such as BTS) can opt for alternative service. 

However, it was revealed that there was a weak understanding among the public of the specifics behind the system of serving as cultural agents. Other opinions thus stated that the system should lay out some ground rules and clearer standards for the future.

1000 individuals is a pretty small sample size. Also, how were those individuals selected ? Was it randomly or did they ask 1000 individuals working in the entertainment industry ? It's very easy to mislead the public with "surveys".
