2020 is almost over. It has been but a roller coaster ride for everyone, well an indoor one we must say. 

So many things have happened but one thing is for certain, we can hope for the best in the new year. 

Another thing to look forward into is the return of some of our favorite oppas from the military. We bet their fans have been eagerly waiting for their comeback. So, without further ado, here are three Korean actors who will be discharged from the military very soon!

Lee Jong-suk

Discharge date: January 2, 2021

When he was 16, he suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) from a car accident. Because of this he was deemed unfit for service as an active duty soldier. So, on March 8, 2019, he began his mandatory service as a public service worker at an undisclosed district office.
