There is now a maximum speed on songs gyms in South Korea can play. This is to stop a new wave of Covid-19. New rules will stop people breathing too quickly or sweating on each other. Gyms cannot play music with a tempo higher than 120 beats per minute (bpm). K-pop fans will be happy. The BTS hit Dynamite is 115 bpm.

The government said the country was at "crisis level". It felt sorry for gyms. It asked people for "a little more patience". Gym owners are unhappy. One asked if songs by BTS have any impact on spreading the virus. He said many people use their own earphones in gyms. This means it is difficult to control what they listen to.
