1. Jaejoong

Return Date: December 30

Jaejoong fans rejoice! After enlisting on March 31, 2015, Jaejoong has served as an active duty solider stationed in the military band division. While in the army, he was still able to release music during his service due to pre-recording a surprise album for his fans. Hopefully we'll see more music and dramas from him very soon!

2. Sungmin

Return Date: December 30

This Super Junior member enlisted March 31, 2015, serving his term in the army in the 17th Division Troop military band. Shortly before enlisting, Sungmin married his wife Kim Sa Eun. She must be so excited to have him back home soon!

3. Shindong

Return Date: December 23

Super Junior fans really do have a lot to celebrate this December - not only is Sungmin returning, but so is Shindong! After his basic training which started on March 24, 2015, he has served in the Third Republic of Korea Army (TROKA) division military band.

4. Choi Jin Hyuk

Original Return Date: December 30

Unfortunately, Choi Jin Hyuk was not able to serve his full enlistment period after suffering a serious knee injury that occurred during his training. Even though he was discharged early on October 16, 2015, he has not taken on any new projects since then and will wait to resume promotions until his official return date. Hopefully he's all recovered and can begin acting again soon!
