Do Kpop Idols Have To Enlist. Most Korean men complete their military service in the early 20s. Based on those enlistments only celebrities born in 1991 are required and must enlist in 2020 around their birthdays.
Some idols have legs with proportions that fans would kill to have them. Olympic medallists are given exemptions. Currently K-pop idols are not among those exempted from conscription.
In May 2018 the military enlistment law in South Korea was changed with the maximum age to which mandatory service can be delayed being reduced from 30 to 28.
For those who dont know due to a new change introduced by Korean enlistment law back in 2018. Thai male idols might have to enlist when they reach the age of 21. A black card means they do not have to serve whilst a red card means they have to. If someone wants to become a K-Pop idol they have to join a training program really young.
