It had to happen sooner or later. 2PM’s Taecyeon has announced his plans to take two years out of the entertainment industry and enlist in the South Korean army.
The American-born singer — who in 2010 gave up his US green card to become a Korean national — revealed the surprise news during a taping of KBS 2TV’s The Human Condition show.
Although 2PM are currently working on new material, the 24-year-old admitted that once the group’s 2015 schedules are over, he will begin his mandatory Korean military service.
“Once the 2015 schedules are over, I’m enlisting in the army,” he told the show, which airs in Korea on Saturday, December 7.
During the filming the 2PM stud also revealed that his ideal type of woman would be someone close to The Avengers actress Scarlett Johansson.
