Super Junior’s Leeteuk and Heechul have revealed that they will be enlisting in the army in 2012.
Leeteuk and Heechul were both born in 1983, and will turn 28-years-old this year. By law, the two are required to enlist by next year, as they will be 29 years old.
A representative of SM Entertainment said, “There isn’t anything decided regarding their enlistment, but because of their age, they will have to enlist sometime next year the latest.”
In effect, Super Junior’s fifth album will essentially be their final album until their discharge.
After hearing of the news, fans commented, “We feel more affection towards the album because it is their final album before their enlistment.”
The men previously revealed that they would be holding a world tour before their enlistment.
