Previously, a list of Kdrama stars who may be leaving for their required military service this year apparently made many fans cry out when they saw their favorite names such as Lee Min Ho, Kim Soo Hyun, Jang Geun Suk, Kim Hyun Joon, etc.
However, according to new reports state that Lee Min Ho and Kim Soo Hyun have just been granted a one-year postponement to their military service because of their work to promote Korean culture.
Insiders who understand contract signings have also suggested that the big stars may not have to leave for military service for the next two years because of their recently signed contracts, says an article on Drama Fever.
