BTS Fan started this petition to South Korean Government and

Attention A.R.M.Y and someone who could have stumbled upon this accidentally!

You may or not know the South Korean group BTS. They are singers, dancers, rappers, and producers. Their impact on today's youth has been tremendous. They have earned everything from a Grammy to Golden Disc Awards. In addition, they have also donated millions of dollars to charity such as Unicef. But, they don't stop there. A member of BTS, Suga has secretly donated 22 pounds of prime quality beef to 39 Korean orphanages.

If you are unfamiliar with BTS, they are compromised of 7 members. Suga, V, Jungkook, Jin, RM, Jimin, and J-Hope. For many people, BTS has helped them with depression, anxiety and other challenges in life. 

You now will know all of the ways they have affected us as human beings and as crazy fangirls and fanboys. Unfortunately, South Korea dictates that all men must serve in the military for 21 months/ almost 2 years. If this happens, one member or BTS will likely go to military service while the others stay behind.There will likely be a replacement member however.

Still, can you imagine BTS without Suga? or V? or Jungkook? or Jin? or RM? or Jimin? or J-Hope?. I know for a fact that I cannot. Surely, all A.RM.Y will miss Suga's savage or softness, V's awesome weirdness, Jungkook annoying his hyungs, Jin's cooking and dad jokes, RM being done with English moments, Jimin's mochi cheeks, and J-hope's positive energy.

If BTS goes to the military, all of them will be done by 2026, and their contract ends around then. Most likely, they will lose popularity and be forced to disband. This happens to most K-pop groups that have gone through the same process. This is too sad :(

But A.R.M.Y, please do not worry! There is still time! Please sign this petition! If there are any K-Army's reading this, please also submit a formal petition to the Korean government at epeople.go.kr 

In addition, please repost this petition to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Spread the word! Also, you may ask how it is fair that other K-pop groups don't get an exemption and BTS does. But think about this, if a Korean athlete gets a gold medal at the Olympics or any other official competition, they are exempted from military service. Please remember that BTS has gotten 1st on the Billboard chart several times, won Billboard's top social artist, and has been verified RIAA gold and platinum for their albums. Isn't this the equivalent of winning several gold medals at the Olympics? And also keep in mind that BTS is the first k-pop group to do this!

Please repost, submit a formal petition, and keep this in mind for many many more happy years with BTS!

I purple you! Good luck in the new year to you and to BTS!
