[아시아경제 윤슬기 기자] Ahn Cheol-soo, the presidential candidate of the People’s Party, insisted on alternative service for the group BTS, calling it “a national loss that goes beyond personal damage.”

Candidate Ahn posted on his Facebook page on the 25th with the title, ‘BTS is well qualified for alternative service as art and sports personnel’ and said this.

Candidate Ahn said, “The amendment to the Military Service Act is being discussed in the National Assembly.

He continued, “I think that including popular art (popular culture) in the existing arts and sports field is in line with the flow of time and equity. It is difficult to understand why Son Heung-min becomes a player but not BTS Because of that,” he explained.

He continued, “There was implicit public support that Son Heung-min’s playing in the world’s best league without a career break would help to improve the national image and promote the happiness of the people.” It’s hard to understand why not.”

Candidate Ahn also said, “I hope that BTS will be given a fair opportunity to perform alternative military service just like young people in other fields that contribute to the national interest, such as promotion of national prestige and cultural development.” A lot of young people who do it will agree with me.”

In addition, Candidate Ahn said, “In the age of cutting-edge science and technology and low birthrate, we have announced the semi-enrolment pledge that the fundamental solution is to go to a customized troop reinforcement structure for the military elite and specialization. I hope that the military will deepen and expand with the issue of reforming the military structure of the semi-military system, etc. It is the turn of the politicians to answer the topic posed by BTS.”
