Top idol group BTS is allegedly to join the military in 2022.
Researcher Yoo Seong-man of Leading Investment & Securities predicted through the Hive analysis report released on the 21st that "BTS is expected to be enlisted together by the middle of 2022, and due to the effect of pre-production before enlistment, the void period will be just a year actually."
"Hive has a domestic lineup of NU'EST, Tomorrow by Together, N'Hyphen and girl group Girlfriends, starting with Seventeen, which will continue the genealogy of K-pop male idols leading to BIGBANG, EXO, and BTS. Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande have also joined through the game," he added.
In this regard, Hive also mentioned the contents related to the military enlistment of BTS members through the investment prospectus released on the 19th.
According to prospectus, "To prepare for the risk of artists halting their activities due to military enlistment, disease, accident, etc., Hive is continuing to increase the proportion of indirect participation-type sales that do not involve direct activities of members, such as MD and licensing sales, and video content sales. In order to minimize the risk of reduction in sales due to the planned vacancy of artists, we are conducting various business reviews such as pre-production of contents such as albums and videos, and flexible artist management through active members.”
