WOULD BTS BE AS POPULAR IF THEY WERE TO ENLIST? KOREAN NETIZENS WEIGH IN

Which group do you think could threaten the Kings?

BTS' military enlistment has become a national debate, even political. As the boy group has done wonders for Korea's economy and overall international sentiment, most in Korea agree that a full permanent pardon is only appropriate.


However fans do wonder, what would happen if BTS were to enlist. Would the Kings continue to reign, or would their thrones be overtaken. Korean netizens discussed just this.

Netizens weighed in, writing:


"If they were to come back all of the message boards online would be full of congratulatory messages in Korean and foreign languages. It's safe to say if they go to the military nothing would change.", "Agreed, seeing how they are doing, they will continue to be kings", "What are you saying, they are already falling off" (Down voted comment), "Look at BLACKPINK, they've been away for a year and a half and are still the hottest girl group, BTS would be the same", "All I know is, I would wait", "Thanks to ARMY they will continue the to be top, although international fans are a large part of the reason why".


Seems like once King, it would take more than the military to knock off the largest ARMY in the world.
