Information on SHINee’s supposed army enlistment dates have been revealed to the public.

As part of being male Korean citizens, all South Korean men (with few exceptions) are required to serve about 21 months in the Korean military once they are of legal age, regardless of occupation. SHINee’s supposed enlistment are as followed:

Onew: 2017-2019
Jonghyun: 2018-2020
Key: 2019-2021
Minho: 2019-2021
Taemin: 2021-2023

Although it’s still years away, Shawols can’t help but be saddened and are awaiting further confirmation. After Onew’s enlistment, SHINee won’t be complete until Taemin’s discharge in 2023. Nonetheless, Shawols pledge to stick by their idol’s sides.
