Below are 6 famous 1994-born male stars who will join the army when they turn 30 next year.
Male celebrities’ military service issue has always been a topic that attracts keen attention from the public. This is because fans will not be able to meet their favorite stars and have to wait for a so-called “military period” that lasts for nearly two years. Under the current military service law, all Korean men with no special reason have to enlist as soon as they turn 28 years old. In other words, they must enlist before their 30th birthday in Korean age. Let’s look through some names who will have to begin their military service soon.
1. Actor Kang Tae-oh
Kang Tae-oh, who has recently made headlines for his appearance in ENA’s “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” as the male lead, will be 30 years old in 2023. He debuted through the 2013 web drama “After School: Lucky or Not” and made his face known to the public by appearing in MBC’s “Run On” and KBS2’s “The Tale of Nokdu”. Knowing that Kang Tae-oh will join the army soon, fans are expressing great regret.
2. Actor Kim Min-kyu
Kim Min-kyu, who created many hot topics as “the man with the glasses” in SBS’s drama “Business Proposal”, which ended in April, will also turn 30 next year. Receiving much love for his pure yet dandy appearance, Kim Min-kyu surprised many fans with the news that he has planned to enlist in the military. Answering various interviews after “Business Proposal” ended, Kim Min-kyu said he might enlist after finishing one more work.
3. Actor Na In-woo
Na In-woo, who is the lovely youngest member in KBS2’s “2 Days & 1 Night”, has also reached the age for military enlistment. He starred in various dramas, such as tvN’s “Mr. Queen”, KBS2’s “River Where the Moon Rises” and JTBC’s “Cleaning Up”. Many netizens were sad when they heard the news that Na In-woo, who has been working nonstop, would have to join the army soon.
4. Actor Song Kang
Rising star Song Kang, who boasts both cute and sexy charms, will be in his 30s starting from 2023. In an interview with Sports Dong-a last year, the actor said, “Of course, I’m thinking about enlisting in the military. I have to go and I don’t think the burden of my hiatus would be great”. Many fans would feel so empty in the 2 years that they cannot see Song Kang.
5. GOT7’s Jinyoung
