Ji Hyun Woo Heads off for Military Service – Who’s Next?
All Korean men are required to complete two years of mandatory military service. For celebrities, it’s a tough situation since it means they won’t be able to reach their fans for over 24 months – which puts their whole career at risk as they may never be able to recover their popularity to pre-enlistment level.
On August 7, Ji Hyun Woo became the latest Korean celebrity to join the Korean army. With more than 100 fans bidding him farewell, the star actor said, “Thank you for coming out in this hot weather. I’ll safely complete my service and come back soon.”
Over the past 12 months, we’ve seen some of the top stars, including Rain, Super Junior’s Heechul, Wheesung, Hwan Hee, and SS501’s Kim Kyu Jong enlist in the army. In this article, we’ll take a look at the stars that are expected to enlist by the end of this year.
