Speculation on His Military Enlistment

According to some portal news, in the past, Korean male citizens could delay their military service until the age of 30 (Korean age). Beginning in August 2018, however, the maximum age at which service could be delayed was lowered to 28.

Male idols who are born in 1992 will turn 28 (Korean age) next year, meaning that they will soon have to fulfill their national duty. J.Seph is in the 92-line, so in 2020 he will fulfill his duty to do the military service.

J.Seph will be the only member of KARD who has to enlist in the military since he is the only Korea-born male in the group.

Many K-Pop fans have felt kind of frustrated with the new law for military services because it means that it would be hard for their idols to suddenly enlisted in the military service in that age. But, let’s hope for the best for those who would do the military services in 2020, including J.Seph and the other idols.

Many people talk about J.Seph and BTS’ V’s name. They literally have the same full name, Kim Tae-hyung. But then, they are two different people with different vibes.

While you can see BTS’ V as a cool but cute idol, J.Seph has a vibe that is a little bit “wild” and strong. J.Seph has a strong mature aura that makes your body hotter when you see him.
