Enlist status of male idols born in 1992: Nearly half of them enlisted, the rest are expected to enlist soon.

In South Korea, all men are required to enlist in compulsory military service for up to 22 months, depending on their military branch. 

Active duty soldiers serve 18 months in the army or Marine Corps, 20 months in the navy, and 22 months in the Air Force. Male citizens can delay their service until age 28, but some choose to enlist as young as 18.

Let’s take a look at the list of Kpop male idols born in 1992 and their military service status by May 2020 (in order of birthdate)!
