Going to military service for male K-stars can either be a two year long cosplay as an ordinary dude or for some in the entertainment service division then a chance to bring the star power to a new stage. Park Bo Gum enlisted in the navy and was assigned to the naval performance division, which is in charge of programming to promote the department and entertain the enlisted. Like all soldiers he did his basic training and since then has been seen in military events and recorded performance from time to time. The most recent this week has K-netizens swooning for his immaculate good looks which hasn’t changed a smidge since going to the army. Not that just, its a reminder that he’s getting discharged in 6 months and I went what? until I realized that yes, an entire year went by after he enlisted prior to the premiere of Record of Youth. His discharge in April of 2022 is going to be such a big deal, he’s the biggest male actor of his age-line and drama producers are going to be flooding him with proposals.
