1. [+506, -13] They have an impact of 56 trillion won, but the army’s holding them backㅠ

2. [+343, -13] Do we have to send the legend of this century to the army? This is a national detriment, we should not compare their enlistment with the general public.

3. [+211, -0] I’m so proud of them. BTS forever. Don’t get sick. Good luck with the show~~

4. [+176, -2] Wow, 56 trillion won…

5. [+129, -10] Let’s exempt them from military service~~

6. [+36, -1] Don’t send these kids to the army

7. [+29, -0] A three-day concert that equals annual sales of six mid-sized companies… BTS is so amazingㄷㄷ

8. [+23, -1] How many trillion won will we throw if we let BTS join the army?..ㅠ

9. [+23, -1] CNN even said, “Korea’s scholars have not yet awakened from the Joseon Dynasty…”

10. [+22, -0] It’s not 56 billion won, it’s 56 trillion won… If BTS joins the army, it’s a national detriment, a waste of money. Can we not exempt them or run an alternative service? There are many different forms of military service.
