Singer Ha Sung Woon began his mandatory military service after initially postponing it.

South Korea has been following the conscription established in 1957, which requires all able male citizens to undergo compulsory military service. They undergo 18 to 21 months of service, but the government also offers an exemption to athletes and artists who make notable works internationally.

Ha Sung Woon’s Enlistment

Big Planet Made, Ha Sung Woon’s agency, confirmed on Monday that the singer would begin his mandatory military service. The official statement, according to Korea JoongAng Daily, did not contain details about the enlistment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The location and time of Ha's enlistment will not be disclosed to prevent Covid-19 infections [from fans gathering] and as the artist preferred to make a quiet enlistment," the agency said.

It will also make him safe, especially since he just recovered from COVID-19.

For what it’s worth, the singer confirmed in August that he would start his duty as a soldier on September 5. However, he tested positive for the dreaded virus days before the scheduled beginning.

This led him and his agency to postpone the date. After recovering, Ha Sung Woon now started his 18-month military service.
