As is required by South Korean law, men under 30 must enter the military for mandatory service for up to two years. The laws have changed recently regarding the age of entry, and while there will be many idols entering the military this year, there's also some who'll be returning to civilian life and presumably their work as entertainers.
Here's just some of the idols we're looking forward to seeing upon discharge!
