He further said, “The agency told BTS that after the new amendment to the Military Service Act was proposed, we were wary of making a decision in regards to their military service, and the BTS members maturely accepted this and left the matter in the hands of the company.”
Adding to it, he again said, “ To put it precisely, the policy on military service is changing, and it’s true that the Bulletproof Boy Scouts members are having a hard time because it’s difficult for them to predict the timing [of their military service]. Since it’s difficult for them to make plans, both the BTS members and the company are currently keeping a close eye on the proposed amendment.”
However, all Korean men between the ages of 18 and 28 must serve in the military for approximately 20 months. Due to a new amendment, Bulletproof Boy Scouts members have been given the option of deferring it.
