SS501’s Heo Young Saeng enlists in the military
SS501(Double S 501) member Heo Young Saeng will be enlisting in the military on October 31st! As we already know, Korean men are required to serve a mandatory two years in the military, and Heo Young Saeng is set to join as a “Conscripted Policeman.”
I had no idea what kind of officer that was so I looked it up, and according to the Korea Times, conscripted policemen are soldiers “who were recruited or volunteered to serve as combat police to fight North Korean infiltrators or help the police maintain public security.”
Now here’s where this story gets really interesting: The leader of SS501 is Kim Hyun Joong, who, as we all know, played Yoon Jihoo in Boys Over Flowers, which also starred Kim Joon who played Song Woo Bin. Now what does this have to do with Heo Young Saeng?! Well, Kim Joon served his military time as a conscripted policeman too! BOOM! It's like that degrees of separation game.
Now that Heo Young Saeng is leaving, he’ll be joining fellow SS501 member Kim Kyu Jong, which means Triple S has to wait even longer for a possible SS501 comeback!
