Do you miss Vixx’s N? Let’s Check Out the Details About His Military Service!

As a Korean man, all of the male K-Pop idols have an obligation to join the military service for about 21 months. It makes them take a leave for a while from the K-Pop industry, whether they want it or not. Usually, K-Pop male idols postpone their schedule to join the military until they have reached the age of 30 in the Korean age system, which is 29 years old according to the International age system.

This year, there are a lot of Korean idols and celebrities that have to enlist the military service and take a break of about 2 years. Some of them are SHINee’s Key, ex-2AM’s Jin-woon, and the idol that we’re going to talk about in this article: VIXX’s N.

As the leader of the group and also the oldest member of VIXX, N is the first member to enlist for the military service. N has participated in every schedule of VIXX so far and has taken part in every promotional activity since the day they made a debut in May 2012. N fills the position of main dancer and vocal in VIXX. Not only promoting with VIXX members, but he also tried the acting field and starred in a lot of dramas. To name but a few, Cheer Up!, Tunnel, Ms. Perfect, etc. Aside from dramas, N has starred in musical theatre as well. N has also sometimes participated in VIXX’s songwriting and composing.

And now, after 7 years from the day he made a debut with fellow VIXX members, N has to say goodbye for a while to ST☆RLIGHT, the fandom name of VIXX’s fans because N will have to be inactive for about two years because he has to complete his military service which is mandatory.

VIXX’s N Announces the Date

The first time N officially announced the date of his military service was on February 26th, 2019. On VIXX fan-cafe he wrote that he would enlist the military service on March 4th, 2019.

The announcement was so sudden that it surprised many of the fans, which he admitted, but in an interview after the release of their latest album in April 2018, he said that joining the military service is a natural thing to do and it is something that has to happen sooner or later. So instead of being sad, N is hoping that fans would cheer him up to give him some strengths before officially joining the military service.

Don’t worry, N, ST☆RLIGHT will always cheer on you and give you support!
