The Korean Army on Friday commented on a media report that claimed it gave J-Hope of BTS certain privileges when he entered the boot camp.

A local media asserted that six cars were allowed into the camp in Gangwon Province on Tuesday instead of one, as announced by the military. Access passes were given to the artist’s entourage in advance while other people were only given one on the site after confirming notice of enlistment.


There have been prior consultations with his label to prevent accidents and access passes were given to the company when the staff visited in advance to case the premises, an official explained. The single vehicle policy is not mandatory, he added, but is a guideline to ensure safety and order at the site.

Label Big Hit Music did not offer any comment regarding the issue.
