Which K-Idols & K-Actors Will Enlist in Mandatory 2-year Military Service in 2015?


Popular K-Pop news site, Soompi, published an article yesterday that talks about various stars and the possibility of upcoming enlistments in the new year. While their list is not exhaustive, it does highlight some of Korea’s most popular actors and idols. Netizens and fans know that military enlistment is inevitable, but with 2015 just around the corner, it has saddened quite a few to know that many of the following could be out of the spotlight for a good portion of the next 2 + years.

Here’s a list of possible enlistments. (Soompi’s list combined with my predictions based on year of birth 1985-1987):

  • Lee Seung Gi
  • Choi Jin Hyuk
  • Yoo Ah In
  • Lee Min Ho
  • Seo In Guk
  • Moon Joo Won
  • Jaejoong (JYJ)
  • Yoochun (JYJ)
  • Junsu (JYJ)
  • Yunho (TVXQ)
  • Kim Hyun Joong
  • T.O.P (Big Bang)
  • Sungmin (SuJu)
  • Eunhyuk (SuJu)
  • Donghae (SuJu)
  • Siwon (SuJu)
  • Ryeowook (SuJu)
  • Kim Kibum (SuJu)
  • G.O (MBLAQ)
  • Seungho (MBLAQ)

While this list is highly speculative, the possibility of it happening at least within the next couple of years is increasingly high; however, we know that since Choi Jin Hyuk pushed back his service once already, he will most likely enter his military service in 2015. Shindong of Super Junior has already bowed out of his idol duties to prepare for his training and service that was set to begin at the end of November 2014; however, due to a back problem, it has been pushed back until early next year.

Which actors and/or idols will you miss the most while they are away on their 2-year service? Are there any others not on the list that you think may begin their service sometime in 2015?

    • I agree. I hate that they’ll be out of the spotlight for 2 years, but it’s something that we’ve had to go through countless times already, right? Ugh…still so sad.

    • I know. =( 2 years is a very long time to have to wait for our favorite stars to finish and ‘come home.’ We’ll just have to all stick together!!! =)

    Lee Seung Gi … best smily… best acting — great singer… He is the one I will miss the most.
    Secondly Lee Min Ho, Kim Jae Joong and A-JAX’s Jaehyung
    Aldou I admire korean for doing their mandatories. Seriusly es good for men and good for the country.

    • I agree, all of them will be missed; and knowing for sure that Choi Jin Hyuk is going this year, makes it super real for me. I agree and also admire them for doing their mandatory service. ^^
