#trending: South Korean e-sports star may skip military service with Asian Games gold, riling up BTS fans

An unlikely controversy between K-pop and e-sports fans has emerged online after it was reported that a top South Korean e-sport player could be exempted from mandatory military service if he clinches a gold medal at the Asian Games.

Another social media user posted a video of Faker and BTS members singing praises of each other before their first meeting, writing: “The fact that y’all think it’s okay to say things like this when BTS and Faker have nothing but respect for each other is insane to me.”

Another user who appeared to be a fan of both parties, took a more lighthearted approach, joking: “When I said, ‘Please I want another T1/Faker interaction with BTS’, the fighting over who gets exempt was NOT what I meant.”

The South Korean e-sports team had already put on an impressive performance for LoL matches, with dominant victories in the group stages on Monday over Hong Kong and Kazakhstan.

South Korea is set to play Saudi Arabia in the quarter-finals on Wednesday morning and the LoL finals will be held on Friday night.
