SM Entertainment responds to rumors about an August military enlistment for Yunho

As you know, TVXQ's Yunho will be enlisting some time this year to carry out his military service, and sources say that he'll be doing so in August. That sounds far away at first, but if you think about it, we're already into May! 

A media outlet reported earlier that industry insiders have tipped them off that Yunho will prepare to enter the army in August, once he wraps up filming for his upcoming web drama. Yunho will begin filming for 'I Order You' in May and the episodes will come out in mid June. 

When asked to confirm, SM Entertainment representatives stated vaguely, "Yunho's enlistement date has not been set yet. But he will begin active service within this year."

As previously stated, as a 1986-er, Yunho's age requires him to enlist this year. He will be following fellow 1986-ers JYJ's Jaejoong, Super Junior's Sungmin, as well as actor Choi Jin Hyuk, who entered the army this past March.

Whichever month Yunho does end up entering the army this year, we hope those 21 months of service go by quickly!

I really want TVXQ to comeback in Korea before he goes.

i thought you could go into military service until you are 35?

tvxqfangril85 Friday, May 1, 2015

No actually until 32 in Korean years.

SM's statement is not -that- vague... they're asked if they can confirm the date, they say "no" but add that it's definitely this year. How is that vague?

Btw, conscription from korea is between the age of 18 and 35, how do they determine when you're drafted for basic training? Or is that completely random? But that would be strange as the article states "as a 1986-er, Yunho's age requires him to enlist this year". Can you also volunteer for conscription before you're actually called by the government?

I think all South Korean males fit for military services get drafted when their high school ends. So that all of them start their military service within a year when their high school ends if they don't ask it to be pushed back.

@eeddee so what does it mean when the article says "as a 1986-er, Yunho's age requires him to enlist this year"? He sure didn't graduate high school this year, and there's an implication that the birth year 1986 means you're drafted this year, and not another year.

eeddee Friday, May 1, 2015

@intricate It means Yunho can't push back his military service anymore like he probably has done many times already because of his career. Those born in 1986 are now so old that they can't push it back anymore they have to start the military service this year.

@eeddee but what about those older than 29? Conscription is from 18 until 35, does it mean that you must have had basic training and active duty before the age of 30 and that you can be called up after that? And once you reach 35 years of age you won't be asked to serve (in case of war) anymore?

Fighting Yunho-san!
As much as I want a comeback at least before he enlists, I'd rather he takes a rest before he goes into military training. I hope SM could give TVXQ! that. They've been working so hard this past year. ;
In other news, both of them are starring in a drama so ♥♥♥

Quickly! Quickly! If I say it enough times, it'll certainly come true.
