(The reform strengthens the conditions of travel ban to men who are 25~27 (legal age) and have not completed their military service. Yoon Doojoon is unable to attend Bangkok fanmeet on June 24.)

1. [+1539, -13] The reform is well-done. So is Jang Geun Suk exempt from the military service or what?

2. [+1088, -15] It's better to complete the military service quickly before they age even more.

3. [+1041, -27] If he's a 89'er, isn't he 30 already? Yet he still didn't complete his service?

4. [+51, -1] But Jang Geun Suk goes to Japan everyday and he's a 87'er ㅋㅋ

5. [+40, -4] Emergency, my ass. Those guys show off their bodies but they become disabled when they have to enlist.

6. [+36, -4] How is this an emergency? Just enlist, it's such a simple solution...

(Basically means that even if the law wasn't strengthened by the reform, he still fell under the original conditions.)

1. [+319, -19] Others would've completed reserve forces training with his age...

2. [+317, -9] ???

3. [+263, -4] Even if the reform didn't happen, he was originally unable to leave the country.

4. [+24, -1] Yoon Doojoon's company messed up but they were blaming the military law reform. The military administration is clarifying that he's unable to leave the country regardless of the reform.

5. [+22, -3] So it was his company's media-play. Even if the reform didn't take place, Yoon Doojoon couldn't leave the country due to the original law.

6. [+22, -1] Aigo, his good image is getting tarnished because of military service... This is why male celebrities have to have completed their military service.
