Mandatory military service in South Korea applies to males between the ages of 18 and 35, who have to enlist before their 35th birthday. Basic military service lasts for 21 months, while marines serve for 23 months, and air force for 24 months.

This year many famous Korean celebrities are leaving us for this reason, and we won't be able to watch them on TV until late 2018 or 2019. Sad, right? Without further ado, here's the list of Oppas who are enlisting in the military this year!
