Another one of our K-pop stars is headed off to the military. This time it's Akdong Musician's Chanhyuk.

On Wednesday, YG Entertainment confirmed that Chanhyuk, who is 21, will begin his service on September 18.

The young star opened up about his upcoming military service back in January.

"If the fans love our songs, they will wait for our music," he told Allkpop.

"Of course, they could forget about us, but if they have memories with Akdong Musician, I believe they will wait for us. I do not think that the hiatus will be that long."

Akdong Musician recently made a comeback with the tropical-house song "Dinosaur," which has already sold almost half-a-million downloads since its release in July.
