Baekhyun and Taemin coming back soon? All the male idols fans are excited to see be discharged from the military in 2023

AKP STAFF

In South Korea, male citizens from ages 18 to 35 are required to perform mandatory military service. Although the mandatory military service period has decreased over the years, healthy, able-bodied Korean men must serve their country for around 18 months.

Korean male idols are no exemption from this military service as they are required to enlist before they pass the age of 30. Therefore, fans have no choice but to briefly part ways with their beloved idols. Luckily, fans only need to wait an average of a year and a half for their favorite idols to return.

In 2023, many male idols are making their return as well, and they have gotten fans excited!
