Since actors Song Joong-ki and Yoo Seung-ho –who returned recently after their discharge from the army– are making sudden rises as ‘it actors’, singers’ album releases are creating interests one after another. It is true that a 2-year gap caused by a military service in one’s 20s, bears a burden to the male stars who holds activities in the entertainment world, onstage and in their prime, at home and abroad. However, recently, stars who receive the general public’s love are increasing; by heightening their favorability on the side, with their tough virility up to their healthy image more than ever after getting discharged from their military service as a turning point. In the cases of singers, they are presenting meaningful gifts to their fans who misses them longingly and casts the gap of their hiatuses into the shadows; with them releasing new songs in the middle of their military services.
JYJ Kim Jaejoong –who’s in the middle of his military service– has gained hot popularity, releasing his 2nd regular album ‘NO.X’ last month. It raised album sales of 90,000 copies in only a week and recorded 1st place in 16 countries on iTunes charts throughout the world immediately after its release. His title track ‘Love You More’ was nominated for 1st place on a terrestrial music broadcast.
JYJ member and public service worker Park Yuchun also swept at home and abroad with his first solo song and mini-album ‘How Much Love Do You Have in Your Wallet’ after its debut in January. He showed off his steadfast popularity, ascending to 1st place on national major album charts after its release.

It’s more an exemption thanthe rules! You gotta be at Jaejoong’s level to still be popular despite serving the army. And it’s too high a standard.
