In South Korea, military service is compulsory. All able-bodied men are required to serve in the army for 18 months by the time they are 28 years old. In 2020, SK’s parliament passed a bill in which South Koreans who “excel in popular culture and art” are allowed to put off their mandatory military service until the age of 30.

Meanwhile, the other members of BTS will be enlisting in military service as per their individual plans.
