Kyuhyun will be enlisting this year.

SM Entertainment said, "Kyuhyun will be enlisting this year as a social worker." Because of his bad car accident in 2007 with the other Super Junior members, Kyuhyun was assessed to enlist as a social worker as a result of his physical examination.

SEE ALSO: Another SM artist falls victim to plagiarism by an Indian film OST?


He's currently the main MV of shows such as 'Radio Star' and 'Journey to the West 3'. Also, 2017 has just started and there is no set date determined yet, so fans may still have a while until Kyuhyun enlists.

There's always a way to serve your country even if you're not physically fit to serve in the military or the police. Kudos to the Evil Maknae!

wondering what kind of social work he'll be doing. Also wondering how it's possible for him to be conscripted as a social worker while utter psychopaths are told to train with a gun and do dangerous exercises.

Utter psychopats? For example who? And how is it possible? He nearly died in 2007 because of car accident. He has still some issues going on because of the accident same as Heechul with his leg. Even the almighty knetz priced him for going to serve, even if it's only as social work, he had the option to not go at all. Do some research before speaking the next time please.

oh i don't know.. those guys who go nuts and kill their entire squad? or perhaps those folks who set off a grenade and then run to the other side, only to be brought back? Those people are a far bigger liability to the safety of the military than the average Joe who suffered from a car crash and has 20 titanium plates screwed into his body to keep it together. I'd even hazard a guess that such folks are more dangerous than any NK soldier, because you never know when the bomb goes off with the "craycrays" in those physically taxing and mentally stressful environments. But... military leadership still deems them fitter to serve as conscripts compared to the part metal / part machine people... oh well... more lethal accidents it is then...

Also, i would like to clarify that I don't think he should be conscripted into the military, but that I think he's better suited to serve than many others who are serving in the military. So my question is, why are those other people even allowed to serve when somebody like Kyuhyun is not? If Kyuhyun, who is deemed a risk due to his condition, can't serve, surely, those others should be kept even further away....

Hi, I think that Kyuhyun is not a risk to the military though. Maybe what the article meant to say was Kyuhyun might be "at risk" if he joins. It would not be for the safety of the military but for his (Kyu's) safety :) P.S. sorry for butting in.

Kyuhyun has almost died, and has sustaining injuries, are you're seriously chastising him for not going into a possibly dangerous situation (for him)?

Did something like that happen in SK military for the past years tho??? Can you give me some receipts or are you randomly talking about some incidents around the world??? He isn't physically fit for being in army so don't bring the stories about mentally sick dudes here, it has nothing to do with him. How can you even know he's 'better suited to serve' ?? Military doctors obviously don't think so but ofc you'd know better.

i don't think he's a risk either, but those in charge of qualifying him do. But somehow they don't refuse people with conditions that could pose an actual threat to other soldiers. At any rate, i think it's right he's not serving in the military itself, his injuries indeed are to great.

i don't think you understand what i wrote. I'm calling out the military itself to accept those who are in far worse condition compared to kyuhyun. They should never allow such people to serve, but they do. People who are an actual lethal threat simply by being in the military. I think that's scandalous to say the least.

yes, last year, and the year before that, and the year before that.. it's a common occurrence. All because of way too lenient policies when it comes to recruitment. Especially recruitment of those who are mentally unstable. It's as if they don't think that's a problem somehow. And at the same time, some physically disabled folks, who lack arms and/or legs, aren't allowed to serve even though they are willing and able. It's super sad. Not saying that Kyuhyun should serve, because I think he shouldn't, just saying he's better qualified than many who are forced into conscription while he's refused. So if he's not allowed, how come those others are?

and FYI, i was specifically mentioning incidents that happened in the past 2 years. The guy who went haywire on his squad mates was a big news item, and they used the incident to highlight the fact that such incidents are common. How the screening process when it comes to mental fitness is faulty. This is mainstream Korean news media we're talking about here.

Last year in SK and the year before too??? Really? Then give me some links please because I haven't heard a thing about it. And you should know better that mental issues are much more difficult to detect than physical conditions. Anyway I see your point and I agree mentally unstable individuals shouldn't be let to join military but you may go nuts even during the training due certain occurances. Also are you sure akp is the place where you should "call out the military itself"? Write to the newspaper or somewhere relevant then.

here's the article about the squad killing machine (remove spaces after periods): www. nytimes. com/2015/02/04/world/asia/south-korean-who-killed-5-fellow-soldiers-is-sentenced-to-die. html?_r=0

Note how in the article they mention regular mass killings that occur in the conscripted military. Also, recruiters are supposed to be trained to identify these individuals, and screening must be put in place to identify those with prior records. Neither of these are in order. So why can they screen those who've had known serious injuries, but fail to screen those who had known serious mental conditions? That's a major shortcoming, and a comparatively far more dangerous one. Somebody who had reconstructive surgery on his leg might get injured again, and that might put his comrades in a certain amount of danger during a deployment. But a mentally unstable person is -always- a potential threat, nut just in combat, but for example also in the mess hall in the morning after PT, or during guard duty like the sergeant in 2015. The fact of the matter is, these mentally unstable people are one of the most significant causes for loss of life during military service in SK. That fact alone should prompt immediate and sweeping changes in the way SK military maintains it's conscription.

Thanks for the link but you're still forgetting one important info, The crimes were comitted because of severe bullying. If you think bullying can't cracked the mind of the healthy person you're terribly wrong. Anyway I agree about more strict screening, surely it's needed but again mental issues are much more harder to detect then physical. And also the miltary should prevent the case of bullying in the first place!

in most countries you're not even allowed into the military if you've been bullied before, you will fail your psych screening. The point is, if you can't handle bullying (which is absolutely no shame in itself) you shouldn't be allowed into the military in the first place. What your captors will do to you, should that ever happen, is way worse than any kind of bullying. You probably don't need to think very long about what can happen to the mission when that happens...

Also, i think you're making a joke out of the psychological community. Yes it's hard to identify mental issues with people, but it's not harder compared to any physical issues. Both require professionals to decide whether or not such issues become a problem, and professionals are available for both areas to do just that. However, for some reason the SK military chooses to not invest into the mental side of their soldiers' health, neither during recruitment, nor during service. For a trained professional it's like witnessing a person limping down the road to their street sweeping job while a broken bone is sticking out of their leg.

Hey have you actually read the article you sent me? There was nothing about bullýing before the military but about bullying IN the milltary and yeah your potential captors can do you worse but we're still talking about the humans not the machines. It's nice to be prepared but you can never really prepare for torture. Also the extract from the article here - In 2005, an army private who had been hazed by his superiors killed eight fellow soldiers in a front-line army unit. In 2011, a corporal BULLIED BY FELLOW MARINES went on a shooting rampage at a base near the maritime border with North Korea, killing four. Last April, a 20-year-old private DIED after being repeatedly BULLIED and beaten by other soldiers. So?

The reason why the military chooses to mostly ignore mental stability is because the subject is culturally taboo. The amount of people suffering from any kind of mental instability far outnumber those suffering from physical injuries because of it. Nobody seeks help, and professionals are not listened to. It's a systemic problem that ensures these unfit people to end up with weapons in their hands to cause regular incidents with lethal consequences. The statistics and evidence is overwhelming, but nobody is doing anything about it. At least nobody with the power to bring about much needed change.

it doesn't matter when the bullying happens, but if you've been bullied before you will be picked out. If you haven't been bullied but you can't deal with it you will be picked out.. also... the lethal incidents more often than not are caused by mental issues other than bullying. Have you read the article?

You answered your previous comment here. Yes it's the cultural taboo so it's not only problem of the military. Should it be changed? Yes for sure but there're also the other aspects you ignore. No matter how good the psycholohist is, some individuals can befool him, Intelligent psychopaths for example. I'm not saying it was the case here but it can happen. But as I said I agree with you. The seening should be much more strict.

it seems like you don't really understand the issue here. some people are not mentally fit to be in the military, and these people are not filtered out as efficiently as those with physical injuries, even though it's perfectly possible to maintain the same degree of efficiency for both. A mentally stable person is capable of handling torture with proper training. Like i said, if there are indications that you can't handle it, they will pick you out if you're trying to get into any kind of professional military.

no matter how good the doctor is, some will not be able to identify the medical issue.. it's the exact same thing. What you ignore is the fact that it's possible to have the same degree of accuracy during the recruitment.

also intelligent psychopaths are like the easiest to identify for a professional.. i don't mean to belittle you here but seriously... maybe we won't be able to identify them, but i can assure you. A professional psychologist doing the mental assessment of a recruit who has done thousands of interviews over the course of only 1 or 2 years can do it with the drop of a hat. Don't underestimate the professionals please.

A mentally stable person is capable of handling the torture with proper training? You must be kidding me. The professional soldiers maybe can but after 1 year and 9 months you won't become capable to handle trorture just like that . I said I agree with you about the seening but you ignore some other aspects which lead to these tragedies. Dot. Bye.

i don't know why, but you seem to be denying the fact that procedures already exist to solve all the problems the draft system in SK has. Every single factor that leads to those conscripts killing comrades left and right has a known solution, but the SK military has failed to implement them. That's the bottom line. You can come up with one factor or another all you like, but they all have known solutions. You can keep telling me that I'm ignoring something, but in actuality, you're the one denying every problem you point out has been considered and resolved many years ago by many different nations all over the world.
