AKP STAFF

The transition committee of the president-elect will be meeting with CEOs of SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, HYBE Label, and more to discuss supporting popular music. 

According to media reports, the transition committee of the president-elect will be meeting with HYBE Label, SM, JYP, and MNH Entertainment CEOs, as well as representatives of an independent music association on April 4th at 3 PM KST. 

The committee plans to discuss ways to support popular music, including building infrastructure and systems to promote the industry. Further, it plans to discuss legal and administrative changes that are necessary to further promote the globalization of K-Pop.  

However, the committee drew a line regarding the exemption of mandatory military services for qualifying male artists, once again confirming that nothing about BTS's exemption from mandatory military service was discussed during their visit on April 2nd


The committee explained that this meeting's purpose is to develop a more practical government agenda that could help advance Korea as a cultural powerhouse.

Geez it seems that in SK everything just goes well that the entertainment industry is a priority for new president's administration. How comes that YGE was left out? Anyway, using the entertainment for political purpose won't bring any good for artists but only for politicians.
