Beginning 2024, a new list of stars will make a short exit in show business and enter the army. It has been said that the stars born in 1994 and 1995 can no longer postpone their enlistment, so they are expected to fulfill their military duties soon.

Attention is focused on stars with foreign nationality among Korean actors leading the industry born in 1995.

Among them is Ahn Hyo Seop, who showed enthusiastic performances in the series “Dr. Romantic,” “Business Proposal,” and “A Time Called You.” Since he was born on April 17, 1995, and turned 28 years old, he is supposed to be set for enlistment.
