Boyband BTS still have to do military service

South Korean boy band BTS will not be given exemption from mandatory military service, the defence ministry has said, reaffirming its policy of no exceptions for pop stars.

The decision is likely to fuel debate in South Korea, about whether entertainers and athletes should have to do their full military service, of about 18 months, when they might be at the peak of their careers.
