Earlier this month, the MMA sent an official letter to a number of entertainment agencies requesting cooperation. The letter also requests the agencies to submit information on their artists, as well as trainees born between January 1, 1980, to December 31, 1999.
The male artists mentioned by the MMA include singers, actors, comedians, dancers, models, and trainees.
MMA's act on celebrity enlistment is a result of growing concern about celebrities constantly delaying enlistment due to entertainment activities.
A rep from MMA stated, "Celebrity enlistment is an interest to the whole nation. As a new law has been implemented for a thorough care, we need active cooperation from entertainment agencies."
