A Soldier To Be

This is going to be an unforgettable birthday for Baekhyun as he joined the army boot camp yesterday.

As might be aware, military service is still a compulsory duty for male citizens in Korea. And in most cases, no matter how prominent you are, you must go through at least the basic training in boot camps. For instance, even football star Son Heung-min, who has won the Asian Game, had to spend 3 weeks in the military, even though he was excused the full 21-month military service.

On the other hand, for K-Pop stars, the situation is different.

In Korean society, opinions are still divided on whether K-pop stars should be allowed to excuse the 21-month of military service. While several amendments to the Military Service Act were submitted and passed in the National Assembly, it is still being criticized by stakeholders for being unrealistic to meet the necessary requirement.

For Baekhyun, he is going to spend his next three weeks in the boot camp to receive basic training, and he is being assigned to serve as a Social Work Personnel. This is called Service of Social Work Personnel. As Baekhyun is undergoing his treatment of hypothyroidism, he has deemed not suitable for regular military service, thus was being assigned to serve his military duty differently.

According to Military Service Act, Social Work Personnel is persons called up to serve in the field of public interest to support social service duties, administrative duties, etc. related to social welfare, hygiene, medical service, education, culture, environment, safety, etc., in institutes such as state agencies, local governments, public organisations, and other social welfare facilities.

“Even though we are not going to be separated forever,” Baekhyun, in his fan community, wrote, “and we are only being separated temporarily, instead of feeling sad, let’s make it feel like we are stilling being together but in a different way.”

“I know how hard waiting is, so I’d rather say I love you all than asking you all to wait.

“I love you all and I like you all.

Baekhyun is the 6th member of EXO enlisting, after Xiumin, D.O., Chanyeol, Suho, and Chen.
