It’s not easy for celebrities to gain male fans in the army.
However, some male celebrities gain many male admirers for their outstanding conduct while serving in the military. Due to their passion and hard work, not only did they get promoted in the military but they also gained fans of all ages.
Here are some male celebrities who not only caused any trouble during their military service and fulfilled their national duty as exemplary soldiers in the army:
On April 5, Around Us Entertainment revealed that Yoon Doojoon had been promoted to corporal early for outstanding conduct. On April 1, 2019, he was promoted to corporal three months earlier than scheduled. He is currently serving as an active duty soldier at the 12th infantry division’s military police department after enlisting on August 24, 2018.
2. BIGBANG’s Taeyang
Taeyang is currently part of the 5th Artillery Division. He is fulfilling his military duty while performing his hit songs in various military festivals. Many people smile with satisfaction when they watch soldier Taeyang turn a military event into his personal concert.
3. Akdong Musician’s Lee Chan Hyuk
In September 2017, Lee Chan Hyuk enlisted in the Marine Corps and recently reunited with his sister Lee Soo Hyun for Akdong Musician’s fifth debut anniversary. In the photos that were released during his military service, he suits the army uniform more than anyone else. The military song he made during this time has become an official song used in the army.
Yunho is famous for his burning passion in everything, including his military service. He was awarded the status of special class soldier by achieving a score of 90 or higher in shooting, strength, mental strength, and combat training. On “Happy Together,” he revealed, “I received a request to become a full-time soldier. I considered becoming the first celebrity career staff sergeant until Changmin’s discharge.”
Another star known for his passion in the military is Lee Seung Gi. After enlisting in the army in February 2016, Lee Seung Gi served for 21 months in the Special Warfare Command unit and was discharged on October 2017. He came back with a strong physique that pleasantly surprised his fans, and for a while on SBS’s “Master in the House,” he couldn’t stop talking about the military.
Actor Kim Soo Hyun, who is currently serving in the first Reconnaissance Battalion, went out of his way to serve as an active duty soldier. Due to a heart condition for which he has received surgery in the past, Kim Soo Hyun was originally assigned to public service duty after his physical examination by the military. However, the actor requested to be re-examined and he was eventually cleared to serve in active duty. Just like Yoon Doojoon, he was promoted to sergeant in advance for his outstanding service.
Taecyeon, who was officially promoted to sergeant on February 1, is currently serving as a military instruction assistant at the 9th Armed Forces Division in Gyeonggi Province. The 2PM member previously drew attention for voluntarily giving up his U.S. green card and choosing to undergo herniated disk surgery in order to serve as an active-duty soldier instead of a public service worker, even though the military initially deemed him unfit to serve active-duty because of his physical condition.
8. Joo Won
Actor Joo Won decided to serve as an active duty soldier although he initially passed the examination to serve in the police department. After receiving exceptionally high marks during his basic military training, he was promoted to assistant instructor in his division — the assault battalion, which is part of the 23rd infantry regiment of the skeleton unit. He was discharged earlier this year on February 5.
9. BTOB’s Eunkwang
After enlisting in August 2018, BTOB’s Eunkwang impressed during basic training by receiving first place out of all the recruits in overall results. He was assigned to Special Warfare Command — where he’ll serve as a soldier in the special forces —, a title given to military personnel who have received outstanding scores in shooting, physical endurance, mental endurance, and combat skills.
