Earlier at the National Defense Commission’s plenary meeting on August 31, Minister Lee Jong Seop mentioned opening a public opinion poll on the issue of military exemption for BTS. When the controversy became more serious, he announced that “the Ministry of Defense will not conduct the above opinion poll”. “Even when conducted, the decision is not based on the results of this survey,” he added.
