Military service is an essential duty for male South Korean citizens, including KPop artists and idols. By the age of 30, they must fulfill their obligation to serve their country. This often means taking a break from their careers in the entertainment industry for about 18 months.

Recently, several KPop idols have announced their military service schedules. Here are five idols confirmed to enter military service in July 2024.

Recently, Jooan participated in TAN’s first fan concert in Seoul on June 9, 2024. Fans are concerned about the future of TAN due to the controversy surrounding Think Entertainment’s CEO and staff involvement in a DUI case, which threatens the agency’s stability.

These five idols will be missed by their fans during their service. Let’s hope they can serve smoothly and return healthy and stronger. What are your thoughts on their enlistment? Share your feelings and support for these idols in the comments below!
