According to Yonhap News on July 24, the conscripted policeman system will be entirely abolished in the year 2023. The system will be put to an end step by step over the years, and the celebrity conscripted policeman will be the first to be abolished. The police will no longer be choosing a celebrity as conscripted policeman starting 2018.
It's explained that applications by celebrities for conscripted policeman significantly increased, leading to complaints and criticism about celebrity military enlistment. According to the report, the recent marijuana scandal with Big Bang's T.O.P is assumed to have influenced the decision on the abolishment.
Currently, JYJ's Junsu, TVXQ's Changmin, Super Junior's Siwon, and more are serving as conscripted policeman. They are expected to be the last celebrities to serve as conscripted policeman for the mandatory military service.
