K-netizens are a notoriously prickly lot but the one rare area of unanimity revolves around South Korea’s mandatory military service. As long as a guy dutifully and timely serves his two years then K-netizens will universally give him due praise and the corollary is even more vocal when it comes to Korean entertainers. A guy can be a bad actor but if he trots off to military services and does it with gusto then he’ll be showered with positive feedback from K-netz. So when a top star does it the response is magnified as evidenced by the same week military updates from actor Kim Soo Hyun and actor-idol Taecyeon. Both are serving in the army and the former was seen hanging with his army buddies fitting in with the non-celebs serving alongside while the latter participated in a show for the annual Armed Forces Day event looking like he stepped out of an army movie. Looking good boys! I never understand why some stars try to get out of serving when doing so earns lifetime goodwill and brownie points.
