No More Celebrity Soldiers

This was coming a mile away ever since the beginning of the year when it was revealed Rain was banging Kim Tae Hee. There will no longer be a distinction between celebrity soldiers and normal soldiers, so these guys won't get 150 vacation days anymore, let alone state-sponsored trips to massage parlors.


While Rain doesn't give a shit since he won't have to deal with the consequences of being a normal soldier, he (and Se7en) ruined it for everyone else, especially all of the 1985ers that will have to enlist soon.

Song Joong Ki, 1985er who'll have to do active service soon
Determined to cut Rain's and Se7en's balls off now.
Park Ki Woong, another 1985er who had his hopes for celebrity service dashed.
Se7en doesn't give two shits.

  4. I'm kind of surprised it took this long for them to decide not to have celebrity soldiers. When I first got into k-pop in 2008 there were a few guys getting in trouble for special treatment & taking too many vacation days. I guess all the publicity with the more famous celebrities finally took them to the edge...

  7. they're doing away with the Defence Media Agency, but celebrities will still be able to enlist as a public service worker. I think most of Shinhwa did that.

    2. Dunno where you heard about it ending in 2020, but it's not going away anytime soon. There was talk about it being reduced a couple years back, but the Cheonan sinking and bombing of Yeongpyeong shitcanned the idea.

      As AKFG said, it's likely only going to be abolished when the DPRK collapses - and even that's doubtful since they need a load of troops to 'occupy' the country, disarm the DPRK's army, kill off any fanatics that resort to guerrilla warfare, assist in humanitarian efforts etc.

  10. This should go down into the history books. Fuck it, I'll probably even write it in the ROK Army's Wikipedia page.

  11. History has been made... I think. But seeing Rain has No Brains photos kinda pisses me off. Eww. What a male butterface.
