1. [+2,306, -286] They're the real deal, just grant them exemptions already

2. [+1,027, -127] It's honestly discrimination at this point.. ㅋㅋ they've done more for this country than 10 thousand gold medals... it's time to grant them exemptions ㅋㅋ

3. [+776, -122] There are baseball players, soccer players that we don't even know the names of who are granted group exemptions just for one person doing well... BTS needs all members of their group. You can't be missing one or two in their group choreographies. And what if they get injured while serving in the army? Can you imagine the impact that will have on Korea's image? Just grant them all exemptions. I cannot send Kim Seokjin to the army.

4. [+621, -55] Has there ever been a greater example of bringing honor to our country than this? They deserve exemptions.

5. [+436, -107] I doubt there is any soldier who would find issue with them being granted exemptions

6. [+191, -35] I'm a man myself but they don't need to serve. Just let them get basic training and let them go. They are a piece of our culture in themselves.

7. [+126, -9] Just let them serve for three months on Dokdo and then discharge them

8. [+109, -7] They have done more for this country than any gold medal at the Olympics

9. [+81, -8] We have never had something as big as BTS that has done so much for our pop culture. I'm not a BTS fan but they've influenced our economics in such a positive way and that should be enough in itself to grant them exemptions. Jo Sung Jin may be an amazing pianist but he has never brought any economic value in exports or anything to our country like BTS has.

10. [+72, -6] If we let BTS serve as Dokdo protectors, then the entire world will get to learn that Dokdo belongs to us and maybe Japan will give up then~!!
