It is that time again where we must prepare to bid farewell to our favorite celebrities as they go and serve their mandatory military service. It was revealed on February 17 by Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency  that actor Yoo Ah In, Super Junior’sSungmin, and Supernova’s Sungje had been selected as part of the final group of candidates up to serve in the police corps as a conscripted policeman. It was revealed that out all those who had auditioned to enlist as conscripted policemen, only eight people were selected as part of the 47th Seoul Police Special Promotional Unit. Yoo Ah In, Sungmin, and Sungje were among the selected to serve in the police unit. Those who decide to serve their military service under the Seoul Police agency will enlist on a date between the months of May to August.

In regards to enlisting, actor Yoo Ah In’s agency commented to TV Report, “We haven’t officially confirmed anything, and the enlistment date is still undecided. “ Super Junior’s Sungmin’s agency, SM Entertainment, commented, “It is true that Sungmin has auditioned for the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, but there are still many steps to take to finalize everything. He was simply interested so he decided to audition. Enlistment date is also undecided.” Sungje’s agency also commented similarly to Sports Seoul, “Because Sungje is interested in musicals, he auditioned for the Seoul Metropolitan Police Special Promotional Unit and passed. There are still other steps left to take, as well as Japan promotions so the enlistment date has still not been decided.”

The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency also expressed, “There are still some processes such as tests and evaluations the final candidates must take. There is no certain date on when someone is to enlist because we recruit servicemen after there is a vacancy in the unit following a soldier’s discharge. Those who were accepted have different enlistment dates.”

Choi Jin Hyuk’s agency also stated to XSportsnews, “Choi Jin Hyuk auditioned for conscripted policeman in the Seoul Metropolitan Police Special Promotional Unit, but there are still many steps to take to finalize everything.”

In the past, actors Cho Seung Woo and Ryu Soo Young had served their military duties as conscripted policemen. Currently, actor Lee Jae Hoon, singers Heo Yeong Sang, Kim Dong Wook, and comedian Choi Hyo Jong are serving in the police unit.

  1. woohaaa
    i wish sungmin got it
    anyway…wats this police gotta do with musical?

    quite confusing..

  2. Minnie will make a great policeman. I hope it all works out. This means that he can stay at the dorm?…

    • nope, he wont. He will be like Teukie when he still in celebrity soldier

  3. If sungmin enlist this year, how about the next album? He will not participate? And how about Shindong? Is he going to enlist this year too?
    Aniway,i will always wait and support them. Fighting SJ Oppadeul.

  4. am getting angry reading all the comments on netizenbuzz about how this unit is just celebrity soldier and bashing sungmin bcoz he will enlist o that unit but siince I know nothing bout it I wont say anything.
    Whatever people said bout it, I will still proud of him coz I believe he will be like Teukie who take his responsibility seriously no matter what people say. Haters will always find a reason to hate anyway.

    • I don’t understand what the netizens are bashing out. He will be a policeman; there’s nothing low about this role. Being a musical actor, maybe they can find their reasons (although I fully support our leader). They went through selection of ability, okay… Out of the many, only eight was chosen, which shows how strict and high-bar this position is.

      Like you said, haters will always find a reason to hate… *sigh*

      • unfortunately it seems one of the job in the unit that he got selected will be like celebrity soldier where they promote police department, thats why there will be like musical too, but well like what Teukie did its not their main duty. Teukie still doing all the training and other military duties, musical is just he additional duties. I believe the same thing goes to Sungmin case later.

  5. I am not ready for news like this~~TT

    • me to…..because suju are incomplete without each other……

  6. I was really hoping to attend a SJ show after Leeteuk comeback and before Sungmin goes to the army. I’m heartbroken now.TT

    • Me Too. 😦 Pleaasseeee!

  7. another member /cries TT____TT

  8. Wait, hold on, it said enlistment is between May to August, then does that mean he wont be in a SJ comeback in the second half of the year.
    Im not ready to receive this news yet, i have a feeling Shindong and Sungmin is leaving for army within this year, im gonna miss them man!

  9. aww I will miss sungmin so much
    i love him he’s my favorite super junior member
    good luck sungmin you better come back quickly
