Stay – BTS | His new album Be is also number one in the United States and number two in the United Kingdom.

Two of the group’s members, Jin and Suga, will soon be 28 years old (Jin’s birthday is December 4), which means that his time with the group was under threat. South Korean men are required to perform compulsory military service once they turn 28, if they have not already done so. A change in South Korean law has effectively extended the lifespan of boy band BTS, currently the world’s most successful pop group. The law change has extended the maximum age to 30 years for those who are allowed to defer their service. All seven members of BTS have been eligible for the postponement since 2018, when they were rewarded for their global cultural impact. Unlike some classic musicians and athletes, including Tottenham footballer Son Heung-min, they are not exempt from service.

BTS: South Korea passes law allowing K-pop stars to postpone military service

Under the revised Military Service Act, “a pop culture artist who was recommended by the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism to have greatly enhanced the image of Korea both within the nation and throughout the world” is allowed to postpone service until the age of 30.

Last week they became the first K-pop group to receive a Grammy Award nomination. Their latest hit song Dynamite was nominated for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category, alongside stars like Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.  They also recently made history as the first all-Korean pop act to top the Billboard 100 singles chart, and the first group to have a non-English language song enter the chart at number one.

New ‘BTS Law’ in South Korea Allows K-Pop Stars to Postpone Military Service Ahead of Jin’s 28th Birthday

BTS didn’t just blaze a trail for emerging K-pop acts, but they’ve inspired South Korea’s Parliament to not stop them in their tracks. Jin, the oldest member of the K-pop boy band, turns 28 on Friday, Dec. 4, but the celebration could’ve marked an end to his career.

His new album Be is also number one in the United States and number two in the United Kingdom. They have just been nominated for their first Grammy Award, competing against Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and more in the category of best duo / pop group performance. It is the first time that a K-pop group has been nominated for a Grammy.

The room’s empty
Hold still, it’s an order
Our heart beats are louder than ever
No matter where we are right now
Together, wherever yeah

[Verse 2: RM, Jung Kook]
I think it’s a blessing to repeat

Can’t I see you?
I put my hands together
Tomorrow that does not change
Like a madman, I keep sayin’
Wherever you are
I know you always stay

It ain’t the end of the world
The present, it shine like a pearl
These are just a few crisis
But I’m gonna change you

[Verse 4: Jin, Jung Kook]
Hold still, it’s an order
The stars are brighter than ever
No matter where we are right now
Wherever you are
I know you always stay

[Chorus: RM, Jin, Jung Kook]
In the sea where the wind passed by
Stay
I’m talking to you with firm lips
Stay, stay, stay, stay (Always)
Yeah I know you always stay

Yeah I know you always stay

[Post-Chorus: Jung Kook, Jin]
Those brilliant todays
For all of them
Oh every night and day

The cold wind blows
I take your hand, I feel your breath
I close my eyes
We are together
