DooJoon Of Highlight Restricted From Leaving South Korea
Unfortunately for Highlight fans overseas, they won’t be able to meet DooJoon any time soon unless they fly into South Korea themselves.
The K-Pop idol who is currently scheduled to enlist in the military is at the moment unable to leave the country because of the military service law of South Korea. According to the law, anyone who is close to their enlistment deadline may leave the country up to a maximum of five times.
AroundUs Entertainment released an official statement apologizing to fans who were waiting to see him in the upcoming scheduled events.
However, the new military service law of South Korea has raised voices of concern from netizens saying that it will limit idols from fully doing their jobs and making a living since many idols have a foreign fanbase to attend to.
