2PM's Taecyeon to enlist for military services next year

Taecyeon and the main vocalist of 2PM, Jun K, will be enlisting together.

2PM's Taecyeon is likely to head for his mandatory military enlistment early next year. The singer opened about his conscripted policemen service plan at the press showcase of his upcoming drama, Hey Ghost, Let's Fight on Friday.

Taecyeon, the main rapper of the South Korean band, who will be seen portraying the character of an exorcist, revealed that the mystery comic drama will be his last project before joining the services in 2017. He told Allkpop: "I think of ['Hey Ghost, Let's Fight'] as my last project before I enlist in the army next year, and I am working very diligently on filming. Please look forward [to the drama]."

Reportedly, Taecyeon and the main vocalist of 2PM, Jun K, will be enlisting together. The 28-year-old previously told TV daily: "Taecyeon and I are considering enlisting together, but as for the other members, we haven't discussed any details."

Elaborating the fate of the band, he further stated: "If we go one by one, it won't be until 6 years later, when I'm 35, that 2PM would be able to have a group comeback."

Taecyeon also acknowledged the matter and responded: "We don't have that many members, and there are many possibilities that we have to shorten the inactivity of 2PM."

"But we are going to do our best to ensure that 2PM stays relevant. Nichkhun won't be enlisting regardless, so he is a definite shoo-in for the sub unit. Jun. K hyung will be enlisting in January 2017, and our schedules have been planned to that time," he relayed.
