Nam Joo-hyuk, who starred in the drama “Twenty-Five Twenty-One,” will serve in the military police. Last January, he applied for the Military Police Task Force of the Capital Defense Command and was accepted. 

Nam Joo-hyuk has starred in dramas such as “Cheese in the Trap,” “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo,” “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo” and “Start-Up.”

Meanwhile, Kang Seung-sik of Victon and Cha Hun of N. Flying will be serving as members of the Army’s military band after completing their basic training. 

Golden Child’s Y will fulfill his military service as an active duty soldier in the Army. 

"Time passed so quickly from preparing for a new song to promotions. Happy memories from debut until now run through my head. Short hair is awkward and I still can't get used to it.  I will fulfill my duty in the defense with a sincere and responsible image and come back” said Y. 

Y is the second member of Golden Child to enlist after leader Lee Dae-yeol entered the military last year and is serving as an active duty soldier.
