While Leeteuk of idol group Super Junior was discharged from military on Tuesday, another member -- Shindong -- is now set to start his service in August.
As the members serve their mandatory military service one-by-one, many fans wonder when Super Junior will be able to reunite as a full group.
So far, three of the 13 members have completed military -- Heechul, Kangin and Leeteuk. Yesung is currently serving in the Army after joining in May 2013.
Since the rest of the members -- Sungmin, Donghae, Eunhyuk, Ryeowook, Siwon and Kyuhyun -- have not yet joined, some local reports have estimated that it would take at least four to five years for all the members to complete military service.
Leeteuk will join group activities soon, participating in the recording of Super Junior’s upcoming 7th album and world tour concert “Super Show 6.” Shindong also participated in the recording, but will not be joining the concert series.
