SEVENTEEN’s Hoshi talks about enlistment to a fan

As many know, all men must enlist in the military in South Korea. In SEVENTEEN‘s case, the oldest Korean members, S.COUPS and Jeonghan, are expected to enlist in 2024. Born in 1995, they will both turn 29 that year, marking the end of their eligibility for postponement. S.COUPS is exempt from service due to a torn ligament injury. Meanwhile, Jeonghan has already made statements about his impending enlistment, causing panic among fans.

Next in line is the Korean 96-line in the group, consisting of Hoshi, Wonwoo, and Woozi. As they turn 28 in 2024, fans have started to express concern about their impending enlistment. One fan took the opportunity during a video call fansign to ask Hoshi about it personally. According to them, they decided to inquire directly because the members have recently been discussing military service.

In the fansign, Hoshi reassured fans that he would not be enlisting this year; instead, he plans to go next year. This news should put fans at ease, knowing that the 96-line members won’t be entering the military in 2024. This gives CARATs a year to mentally and emotionally prepare themselves for the temporary absence of their beloved boys.
