all korean men (citizens) are required to attend military service for about 2 years... Its because there isn't enough people in Korea to have a sufficient army. So men are trained for 2 years as a solider and released. If there is a war, the korean government can call upon the men trained and have them serve as soliders....


Whoa is this true?
That really sucks for
the men then!

degrade them how? its considered a bigger shame to not attend military service and try and avoid it... There was a big scandal a couple of years ago with Yoo Seung Jun (a famous singer) not attending military service (theres alot more too it, but its a long story..). In short, the government decided to make YSJ an example and basically exiled him from korea for not attending military service. After that, its become a big thing for celebrity males not to escape military service in korea.

omg. im so shock

and im amazed how koreans love their country,that even actors go to military service. they are willing to leave their life outside the military service for 2 years.. that must be a big sacrifice.

but i feel kinda sad that even lee dong wook (i envy those ordinary people who he will be leaving with inside the service


It's mandatory....so doesn't matter what profession you are in, you have to go. This is the same for Singapore & Malaysia. The only difference is that in those countries, you go when you are young, like 17 or 18, right after high school.

Oh it was just a question. Cause to me I think
everyone should do their share in the military too
but I was kinda asking it from celebrity-wise perspective.
Cause you know how some celebrities think they're
too good. so yup.
