Ministry of Defense will allow BTS members to participate in national events + performances during their military service period

AKP STAFF

During a regular press briefing on October 18, a representative of South Korea's Ministry of Defense responded to boy group BTS's decision to carry out their mandatory military service duties beginning as soon as late October.

The Ministry official stated, "If it is for public service to the nation, or for national events or performances which benefit the nation, [BTS] will be given the opportunity to participate in performances and activities should they wish."

The official added, "This opportunity is already available to some enlisted soldiers," and "We are not referencing any specific events or promotions at this time."

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Big Hit Music announced plans for BTS to begin their mandatory military service duties in order of age. Member Jin, in particular, intends on withdrawing his service postponement request at the end of October. After the withdrawal, Jin's enlistment summons will be issued within 3 months.
