Ahn Cheol-soo, chairman of the Presidential Takeover Committee, visited BTS’ agency Hive on the 2nd and said, “The normalization of the performance industry is like a symbol of recovery.

Chairman Ahn visited the headquarters of BTS’ agency Hive in Yongsan-gu, Seoul, on the afternoon of the same day and met with Hive Board Chairman Bang Si-hyuk and CEO Park Ji-won. It was accompanied by Hyeon-Joo Baek, Dong-Won Kim, an expert member of the Social Welfare and Culture Division of the transition committee, and Hye-Rin Son, a working committee member.

Chairman Ahn said, “Isn’t this a cultural venture company?” “I came to hear the voices of the field about what things are needed now.” He added, “The cultural and performance industry is tough due to COVID-19, but I came here because I thought it would be beneficial for us to reflect on the policy at the transition committee if you could tell us what the current situation is and what role the government should play.” In response, Chairman Bang said, “I still feel that the value of popular art in our society is not devalued a bit,” and referring to a small-scale entertainment company, “If I leave it as it is now, I have friends and the seeds are dry.” I think it is a situation where we have to worry about whether or not it is.”

Next, Chairman Ahn said, “One of the regrettable things is that when we perform a concert on Metaverse, it is based on a foreign platform like BusNight. We pay a lot of fees for that.” “The status of K-Culture and K-Pop is always tense at the thought that we can catch up if we make a brief mistake,” he said.

After visiting Hive headquarters, Chairman Ahn met with reporters at the Office of the Transition Committee in Tongui-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul. He talked about the issue of exceptional cases for BTS’ military service, saying, “The story is that several amendments to the Military Service Act have already been proposed in the National Assembly.” It is a matter to be discussed and decided,” he said. He did not mention any notable military service exceptions in a meeting with Hive Chairman Bang Si-hyuk earlier.
