1. [+1,795, -46] Just get rid of celebrity soldiers. Celebrity soldiers get at least a hundred times more leaves than regular soldiers and yet they still come out on Strong Heart after their discharge and act like they went through so much hardship.

2. [+1,402, -21] Yeah, I don't care whether they're dating or not but as someone who served in the army (as well as my brother currently serving), I'm pissed... Regular soldiers don't even get a chance to use the phone and all end up being dumped by their girlfriends ㅋㅋㅋ And yet he gets that many days of leaves... Regular soldiers don't even get the vacation time they're allotted sometimes and there are thousands out there right now in the freezing cold committing to their service. How can he be called the same soldier as them?

3. [+1,296, -27] Just thinking about all of the soldiers shaking out there in the freezing cold and then this celebrity soldier... Ugh...

1. [+567, -14] I really don't understand why celebrities need to be treated differently from non-celebrities in the army

2. [+482, -15] Now that the issue has come to light, reform must be done

3. [+467, -14] I seriously had no idea celebrity soldiers got this many perks...

1. [+625, -23] This just puts how amazing Hyun Bin is into perspective again

2. [+537, -24] He's probably the only celebrity that enlisted as an active duty soldier to be hated to this extent

3. [+423, -26] Didn't Rain enlist as an active duty soldier? When did he switch to celebrity?

1. [+752, -46] Oh Jong Hyuk even volunteered in the search and rescue party during his service. Rain is just nothing but a 'chiseled world pig' drunk on his own fame

2. [+683, -38] Rain's the one that acted all cool bragging about enlisting as active duty, and he yet he switched to celebrity just three months into service? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Try to learn from Hyun Bin. Others are shivering in the cold right now tsk tsk

3. [+608, -6] Hyun Bin's an amazing person

  1. he should get backlash for it. It's ridiculous that celebs think they're better than other citizens and should get special treatment.

  2. I'd also loved to prefer Hyunbin-Taehee and Rain-Song Hyekyo lol

  3. Off topic, but I for one am glad Kim Tae Hee's company did come up with some bullshit cover story and actually replied and confirmed in a respectable way.

  4. How'd I know that this was gonna be a big issue? Sigh, Rain...

  5. cause it's a real issue with them

  6. My biggest concern about my favs going to the army is not being unable to see them for almost 2 years. But that they will fuck up and ditch on their service every chance they get o.O Thus gaining hate from the public and losing peoples respect(including mine)

  7. I really, really hope that when my bias does his military service, that he enlists as an active duty soldier and just does his duty as a citizen. I don't know if that sounds demanding or like it's none of my business, but if I'm being honest, I'll be upset if he doesn't.

  10. Really big respect for Hyun Bin for totally doing his military service properly unlike other celebrity soldiers

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ah~ reading the comments netizen's leave makes me worry for when my favourite groups go to the army. If I was an idol, I would simply endure the 2 years and be welcomed back with respect rather than hate.

    ReplyDelete
  12. He also willingly signed up to be a part of the Marines, which is really really serious in Korea and super tough to go through. So much respect for him (':

  13. lol iv always dreamt of wonbin-song hye kyo and hyun bin-kim tae hee pairing..

  14. And no one never talks about athletes that don't have to go to the army at all.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Idk who which athletes your specifying too but I want to mention that some athletes (like Olympians) totally deserve the exemption. They train like all year long & for x-amount of year (if not most of their life). && also SOME athletes train all year long.. so basically it's like they're in the army already.

      Delete
  15. yeah and he didn't even bitch about how tough it is in the military during his enlistment.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Only athletes that win medals can be exempted from the army and even then they still have to do the basic training. I think they've done enough at that point that people can't really complain.

    ReplyDelete
  17. they also spend 4 years in constant training

    ReplyDelete
  18. Nor related but happy someone mentioned Oh Jong Hyuk :,)

    ReplyDelete
  19. and hyunbin got the name. yet he deserve it since he's done his duty well ^^ *proud*

    ReplyDelete
  20. why military have celebs soldier... If rain got celebs soldier because it was military order, then fine but he get day off so often then spend it like he got the tough job ever, I mean come on celebs soldier itself like vacation and easy work compare to active duty....
    while hyun bin in marines which is tougher give up his reward vacation, this is why hyun bin is flawless...

    ReplyDelete
  21. i think they've already trained way longer than 2 years....

    ReplyDelete
  22. athletes also have to spend about a year and a half as a trainer/coach if they choose to not go to the army so it's not like they're exempt from everything. they still have their own duties to fulfill for their country.

    ReplyDelete
  23. (((((((hyunbin))))))))) srsly actors/idols should really follow what he did...netizens wouldnt hate on them as much....im not a korean citizen and my opinion doesnt matter in the bigger picture...but uh....celebrity status service needs to be removed

    ReplyDelete
  24. Why are they giving him leaves so that he can practice for performances? That doesn't make any sense. I'm very confused, someone explain these things to me.

    ReplyDelete
  25. who other celebrities that in celebrity soldier?..leeteuk and sangchu was in active duty right?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hyun Bin is a man. Truly an awesome man ever! Kinda sad for Rain tho. Try harder Rain!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't effin get celebrities who do this!!! Why can't they endure 2 years of active duty then return receiving praises all around?
    A normal citizen has do his service and return to his normal life, without getting any singled out praise Like celebrities do yet they act like right chicken heads with their musical duty and over dramatized TV appearances.

    I think celebrities like Rain, Leeteuk & Heechul deserve the hate their getting.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i agree that rain should be vilified if he really did skip out on his service but at the same time it does make me wonder; how many of his korean haters are going to jump back on the 'world star's' pedestal when he ends his service and continues bringing recognition to korea. people are fickle and he has no right to call himself a soldier.

    ReplyDelete
  29. nothing admirable about that. Dispatch are known to leak more juicy details and pictures if the celebrities deny it. So it's not like they had a choice.

  30. Props to Hyun Bin.
    Active duty soldier and that also marines.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hyun Bin was once sent to my country as Korean marine ambassador, to tighten
    the relationship between 2 countries, and because they'd do military
    project together..

    That time, Secret Garden were extremely popular on our local tv..
    When he was being interviewed here he only answered the military-related question,
    the MC (he was on my country's marine's anniversary celebration) once asked "What do you think of Secret Garden's popularity?"
    He answered "I'm sorry, but I'm here as a soldier, not an actor, I will only answer military related question"

  32. because military officers always make him entertain/perform even when he's sick

    ReplyDelete
  33. If they win a medal, they are excepted. (Park Tae Hwan, South Korea national football team)

    ReplyDelete
  34. hyun bin also went to INdonesia with some military officers

  35. i think it really is unfair to critisize rain soo much without knowing the whole story..as they say there are always two sides to the story and we should not jump into conclusion so early..i guess they shoud wait, till the ministry investigates into the matter and explains what really happened!! and eventhough what rain did was terrible against the rule,i think the whole matter has been blown out of proportion just because he is dating kim tae hee...and also it is not right to compare Hyun Bin and Jung ji hoon especially when the former has been in the positive light and the latter is in a total mess now...it is like adding fuel to the fire..just let us give the guy a break for now till we know the true story!!

  36. How many medalists has chorea? how many of those are men? and how many of those men are have not served already?.. 2/3 ?

    How can you compare this with the number of artists that korea have (not only idols but actors musician etc).

    Also an athlete almost suspends his life to train for the Olympics 24/7 and not all of them get a medal...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Is military service really is needed?
    2 years?
    Why..is not like north korea threaten them everyday like israel did to palestinian..
    Ok im nof korean....

    ReplyDelete
  38. Rain has been annoying me ever since he pushed his enlistment until the very last minute. Every one of his projects in 2010/2011 was pegged his "last project before enlistment". It got the point where you asked when the hell was he actually leaving?? And then he enlists as "active duty" but skips out on his service? I kind of can't help but agree with netizens.

  39. ladies and gentleman, i present you a real man, hyun bin.
