[theqoo/naver] CRITERIAS FOR BTS’ ARMY EXEMPTION (POPULAR CULTURE AND ARTS) THAT ARE BEING DISCUSSED RIGHT NOW

Q. In the case of Vice Minister of National Defense Park Jae-min, it can be an issue of equity. For example, does the same apply to not being number one on the Billboard chart, but for number one on the UK chart or Japan’s Oricon chart?
In other words, the issue of equity in military service is such an important issue that the standard should not be expanded too much. What is your position?
◆ Seong Il-jong> Apparently, in the case of Billboard in the United States, it is the Olympics of popular music.
So I think it would be good to see the Billboard, the American Awards, and the Grammys, these three.
Q. Regarding BTS, will the military service law be discussed and passed again in the National Assembly in April? What are your predictions?
◆ Seong Il-jong> We reached an agreement between the secretaries of the ruling and opposition parties, we agreed to come to conclusions quickly in April.
(BTS) has led the country to become first-class country leading the world in popular music, and now it is the country’s turn to respond back to these people.
1. Billboard
2. American Awards (T/N: I think they mean the American Music Awards in this case)
3. Grammy Award
Fundamental questions
1. Is it true that the duty of the country should be dictated by the US commercial awards and site rankings?
Is it a place that is equally fair to everyone and is it above our country?
2. On what basis will other pop culture artists be exempted other than actors and singers?
3. Is it right for the country to really pay back and support individual commercial success?

1. These criterias are kinda difficult
2. People who are just asking them to enlist soon are funny ㅋㅋ no but it’s not like they were evading the military and it’s not like they were the only celebrities who delayed their enlistment until the end ㅋㅋㅋ Why are these people deciding on whether they’ll enlist or not? The members will be the ones making the final decisions anyways. Keep your swears for when they delay on the deadline set by the country ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ you guys are treating Bangtan like Steve Yoo here
3. Anyways, it’s not like they can enlist as they wish but seeing how all of you are so desperate in hating on them ㅋㅋㅋ ugh
4. I don’t even understand why people are fighting in the commentsㅋㅋㅋ do you think that they are doing this on purpose? Curse the National Assembly for having such sh*tty criterias
5. They said themselves that they wanted to enlist so just leave them alone
6. It’s indeed weird to have army exemptions based on other countries’ charts. Unless there are acceptable criterias for their exemption, they should just cleanly enlist
7. Why are people saying “they said that they are gonna enlist so why aren’t they doing it faster?” Bangtan has schedulesㅋㅋㅋㅋ you guys are making it seem like they were illegally evading their enlistment
8. What are they saying? Just enlist;;;;;;; Bangtan, who do you think you are….? All of the previous A-list idols enlisted so as long as you guys enlist…
9. Bangtan are being shoved left and right and are just pitiful
10. At the end of the day, everyone knows that they will be exempt anyways no? So many angry people here..

So there was a reason why Bangtan proudly acted like they were gonna get exempted? It’s done ㅋㅋ Even people with brain tumors are enlisting in active duty but they want to increase the number of exemptions?? Do the lawmakers who voted for this know that this is the end of their political career?
2. [+203, -6]
How big is the Billboard to even qualify them for exemption?
3. [+152, -4]
Regardless of who is the lawmaker who promoted and approved this bill, they should be branded as a politician who tried to destroy the national order.
4. [+152, -4]
The Olympics put weight on the fairness that any country can win first place, so how can they call the Billboard an Olympics of music? Like some director said, Billboard and Grammys are just local music charts. They already got many benefits from the being awarded by the Order of Culture and Merits to delaying their enlistment by 1 year, but wouldn’t the existence of the National Assembly be meaningless if it could legislate a law set on ambiguous standards? They will have so many things from the law to clarify?

So I was the f*cking assh*le that didn’t say anything when I enlisted huh
