So long, farewell, see you guys in less than two years time! March 31, 2015 is turning out to be Enlistment Tuesday, so to speak. I already posted about the tears to come for the Cassies as the end of March rolls around and Jaejoong becomes the first of the DBSK five to depart for military service. Jae is not the only one donning fatigues, boarding the train to training camp along with Jaejoong will be Choi Jin Hyuk, who probably wishes he already did his military service years ago before he debuted since he hit his stardom stride much later in his acting career. On the music side, Sungmin and Shindong of Super Junior will also be enlisting, which is likely less worrisome to fans since neither are super popular SJ members, plus plenty of SJ oppas have already served and discharged already.
There is one additional month end enlistment notice that may or not not be complied with – scandal-plagued singer-actor Kim Hyun Joong also received a enlistment notice for March 31st but his agency revealed the star is still considering whether to ask for a deferral due to his current personal situation, namely that he is going to be a baby daddy this summer with his ex-girlfriend. If I were Kim Hyun Joong’s adviser or family member I would push him to just enlist and use his time off during service to slowly work through his future co-parenting with his ex-girlfriend. The baby is going to come regardless of whether he’s around or not and some things take time to really sort through. None of the guys slated to enlist at the end of this month are super faves of mine so this will be one of those less sad enlistment send-offs.
