Don’t leave us, oppas! Several Korean actors and singers have already confirmed their enlist dates in 2017. In 2017, any Korean men born in 1997—that is, who turn 20—can join the army. They have until their 38th birthday to enlist. When the men enlist, they receive four weeks of basic military training and serve for 21 months at an army base, which is usually located in a rural, secluded area. The marines serve for 23 months, and air force for 24 months.

Considering that celebrities tend to enlist before their 30th birthday, these oppas who turn 29 or 30 this year are likely to go. For an actor with an unconfirmed enlist date, we’ve added his last project when applicable. Without further ado, here are 17 Korean celebrities who’re in the talks to enlist in the military in 2017!
