Male celebrities who will have to enter the national mandatory military service next year


National mandatory military service has always been a point of close concern for fans of male celebrities in South Korea. 

Currently, under the Military Service Act one can delay their conscription till 28 years old Korean age without any reason, but one must enter the military to fulfil their conscription latest by the year they turn 30 years old in Korean age.

Here is a list of male celebrities who will be turning 30 years-old next year and will have to enter the military:

1. Kang Tae Oh

Kang Tae Oh recently became a big hit after his latest work "Extraordinary Attorney Woo." However, the actor announced during a production presentation event that was held on June 29 that this would be his last project before enlisting into the mandatory military service. 

This came as a sad news for new fans who has only recently found out about him, and some of them even joked about recruiting people to join the military on his behalf, see more on that here!

Some of them are just gaining popularity after many years in the industry through their recent dramas. It's sad to see them away, but I hope their career will continue to rise when they're back
