Korea passed controversial "BTS Law" allowing certain pop artists to postpone enlistment

The bill passed in a lower court last week and the National Assembly just voted to pass it today - 2 again, 13 abstained, 253 in favor.

The law will allow idols who receive special recognition from the government to delay their mandatory enlistment until 30 - a luxury recently taken away from average citizens as the government promised to crack down on those (famous or otherwise) attempting to dodge enlistment.
