Just recently, GOT7 member BamBam headed back home to Thailand to see whether he would have to serve in the military or not. Thailand has a system where all eligible men are required to draw a lottery to determine who would end up serving.
However, because too many people have voluntarily decided to serve, the lottery didn't take place and BamBam automatically became exempt from having to serve in the military.
According to the reports of South Korean news agencies, Thailand's military was in need of 74 fit young men to serve. Eventually, several volunteers enlisted before BamBam could participate in the lottery.
Fans who showed up to catch a glimpse of their idol seemed happy for him as he was seen smiling with relief. BamBam along with other several men who were exempt from military service were shouting with joy when they discovered they wouldn't have to enlist.
