The seven members of the boy band BTS will soon be in the army. They will take a break from music to do two years of military service. All healthy men in Korea aged between 18 and 28 must do this. South Korea is technically still at war with North Korea. A spokesperson said BTS wanted to do their duty.

Many Koreans do not want BTS to do military service. Korea's government said BTS could do it when they are 30 years old. BTS have brought a lot of attention to Korea.
