The current military service law is that men over the age of 28 must join the military.
However, if special reasons are recognized by the Military Manpower Administration, the enlistment date may be postponed until the age of 30.
Therefore, among the stars who postponed their enlistment for the sake of the entertainment industry, must enlist in the army unconditionally this year.
Changmo, who was born in 1994 and is 28 years old this year according to the Military Manpower Administration’s calculation method, is due to enlistment in the military this year.
In December 2021, Changmo announced on his Instagram that he would be enlisting in the military in early 2022.
On January 23, he regretted not being able to leave the military early and released a picture of his hair shaved.
In addition, Jin, the eldest brother of BTS, who is gaining worldwide popularity, has to go to the military this year.
Jin, who was born in 1992, has already passed the age of enlistment, but his enlistment has been delayed until the age of 30 according to the amendment to the Military Service Act for Outstanding Popular Culture and Arts that was implemented in June of last year.
Accordingly, Jin must unconditionally enlist in the military by December 31, 2022.
P.O, who had to enlist in the military at the age of 28 in 2021, said that he delayed his enlistment until December last year. Therefore, P.O is expected to enlist within this year. Ravi and Song Min Ho, who are the same age as P.O, have passed the age of 28, which can postpone enlistment, so they must enlist in the army within 2022.
In addition, Song Kang, Nam Joo Hyuk, and EXO Kai, born in 1994, who are 28 years old are also expected to join the military this year. This is because, according to the Military Service Standards Act, people born in 1994 must enlist in the army by the end of December of this year, regardless of their birthday.
