Choi Jin Hyuk
Choi Jin Hyuk expressed his desire to do one more production before leaving for the army. He is currently in talks to join the Korean remake of "Fated To Love You." Whichever project he chooses, he will definitely be enlisting this year as he already got accepted into the Seoul National Police Agency"s performance unit.
Jaejoong also revealed that he will be enlisting in the military this year after his drama, "Triangle," which just started airing. His group, JYJ, will also be releasing an album in June, so it seems likely he will go near the very end of the year after promotions!
His fellow JYJ member, Junsu, was also rumored to be going to the military this year, but not much information has been given. Maybe he will also leave after the group finishes promoting the album set for release in June. Stay tuned!
Shindong was revealed to be preparing for his enlistment, which was originally set for March 31, but it appears he successfully postponed it to June. Before then, he is busy with various variety programs and more!
His fellow Super Junior member remains an enigma. It was revealed that he was waiting for his results from the Seoul Police Public Relations Unit, so it does seem likely he will be enlisting this year regardless.
Yoo Ah In
Yoo Ah In also took the exam for the Seoul Police Public Relations Unit, but he gave up on the examinations due to public scrutiny after making the preliminary audition. People have been looking down on the public relations unit, deeming it to be another version of the now abolished celebrity unit. There hasn"t been an update since, but it seems likely he, too, will be enlisting this year. Perhaps after he completes his current drama, "Love Affair"?
Park Ki Woong
Park Ki Woong revealed he will be joining the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency on May 8, so he recently embarked on his military adventure! Known for acting in hit dramas like "Bridal Mask," he will be greatly missed for the next two years.
Yoon Si Yoon
Yoon Si Yoon secretly entered the Marine Corps, not wanting to cause any trouble for the other soldiers enlisting at the same time, which was a very kind and sweet thought. Hopefully, training is going well for him and the two years will fly by quickly, so fans can see him in his next production as soon as possible!
100%"s Minwoo likewise enlisted in the army already. He entered training on March 4 and has already updated his fans since, telling them he was healthy and doing well, so they could rest assured. How sweet!
Make sure you stay updated to see when your favorite stars will be leaving and returning from army enlistment!
