Here Are Details About EXO’s Xiumin’s Military Enlistment

When Will He Be Discharged From Military?

According to the calculation of the length of time that Korean men must undergo military service is 2 years. But since 2018, based on South Korea’s defense reform regulations proposed by President Moon Jae-in on Friday (7/27/18), the mandatory military service and army marines will change from 21 months to 18 months. Meanwhile, the military mandatory length for the navy, which had been 23 months went to 20 months. For conscripts in the air force the time period will decrease from 24 months to 22 months. That means that Xiumin will discharged from military duties in early 2021.
