Rowoon Military Service: Did Rowoon Go To The Military?

There has been a sudden surge of interest in South Korea’s mandatory military service, making it a hot topic in recent times.

Fans from different fandoms are curious to know about their bias’s military enlistment dates. 

Why military service?

In South Korea, all non-disabled men between the ages of 18 and 28 are required to serve in the military for approximately 18 to 21 months. However, there are certain exemptions or deferrals based on specific circumstances, such as holding a vital position in the entertainment industry. 

Did Rowoon go to the military yet? 

As Rowoon was born on August 7, 1996, he falls within the age range for mandatory military service. Generally, K-pop idols and celebrities choose the most appropriate timing for their enlistment to minimize disruption to their careers and group activities.

Some factors that can influence the decision include ongoing projects, group promotions, and individual activities.

In Rowoon’s case it can be said that he has still ‘not’ been sent for military training. The estimated year for the idol’s training is being said to be 2024. Although the agency that manages SF9 has not given an official statement, inner sources confirmed the information.

How does military service function for K-pop idols? 

K-pop agencies often work closely with the government and the military to coordinate the enlistment schedules of their artists. They may consider factors like upcoming comebacks, tours, or individual activities when planning for an artist’s enlistment.  

It’s important to note that enlistment dates are typically not disclosed until closer to the actual service date out of respect for the privacy of the individuals involved.

Public announcements are made when an idol or celebrity officially enters the military, and fans are usually notified through official statements from the agency and the artist.
