A Nigerian lady’s reaction to the news that all seven members of South Korean pop band, BTS, have been enlisted into the country’s military has caused a stir.

The group’s management company, Big Hit Music, had revealed in a Twitter post on Monday, October 17, that the group will perform military service in their native country.

Under South Korean law, able-bodied men, upon reaching age 28, are required to perform military service for at least two years.

While many fans of the K-pop stars were hoping the band members would be exempted due to their contribution to the country’s economy and global prestige, the band announced plans to fulfill their military service on Monday.

The oldest member of the group, Jin, who is 29, will be the first to enlist in the army while other members, RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, will follow suit.

Reacting to the news, a Nigerian lady, who’s an ardent fan of the group, broke down in tears.

The female fan expressed her anguish at the news, stating that she has never attended any of their concerts, visited South Korea, nor has the band ever come to Nigeria.

She said what saddened her the most is that she may have to wait till 2025 or longer before she can ever get a chance to attend their concert or hear any new music from them.
