|K-pop stars BTS to do military service
The world's most popular boy band will soon be in the army. The South Korean pop group BTS are taking a break from music to do two years of military service. South Korea is one of the few countries to require men to do this. All able-bodied men aged between 18 and 28 must serve about two years. This is because technically, South Korea is still at war with North Korea. The two nations didn't sign a peace treaty after the Korean War ended in 1953. A BTS spokesperson said the seven band members wanted to do their duty, and "are honoured to serve".
