Singer/actor Kim Hyun-joong, 28, will not be enlisting at the end of March for his mandatory military service, local media reported.

KeyEast Entertainment, his agency, told Star News the Hallyu star sent in a request, which was approved, to delay enlistment but that they could not say why to protect his personal privacy.

Kim had previously received his conscription notice in August last year but delayed until March enlistment.

    I think this is the best thing for KHJ to do at this time. He really needs to sort this whole Choi’s nightmare out. i wish him good luck. We his fans and friends we’re still with him and always we’ll be with him. God will never leave you KHJ.

    He probably wants to settle the issue of marriage and if not, then custody and securing child support and financial planning, before enlisting for what amounts to about 2 years. This is too sad for Kin Hyun Joong and and this woman. I’ve been a fan for a long time and it’s just sigh-inducing, watching this play out publicly. The woman is older and probably has more real world experience, considering he was stunted by dorm life-agency control during the years she was living and growing into a functional adult in society. So yeah, there’s gonna be issues. He’s immature and needs to seek therapy for his emotional issues and she portrayed herself to be a woman lacking integrity when she put all their personal business in the media. I mean, if she had not sent the private texts between them, especially the ones between her and KHJ’s dad, she would look less manipulative and attention seeking. She might be the nicest person ever, but she hasn’t lived in the media spotlight like him and in that aspect, she dealt with things poorly. He’s got a whole team behind him, she doesn’t. She’s probably getting crap advice from friends and family. She’s pregnant with the baby of the man who is probably one of the biggest male stars in the world, thanks to the Hallyu wave and there are millions of fans and saesang fangirls who are going to HATE her and probably even send her death threats, how can you not kind of pity her. Also, as much as I do adore our 4D Prince, those photos of her bruises are no joke. I have a background of fighting and those bruises on her arms in particular are only formed by closed fisted punches. Regardless of who started it, or who was in the wrong argumentatively, he is a 6foot-ish, hard-body, sculpted machine with martial arts training, where as she is a tiny Asian-bodied woman, probably not more than 5”-5’4 and a hundred pounds soaking wet. This is too sad. I hope they find a way to at least be civil for the sake of their child to be. It’s tough enough to be an unwed mother in Korea, let alone the one known as the woman who ruined the career of Kim Hyun Joong, (which is ridiculous, since he is a grown ass man, but that’s what she’ll be alled, none the less)

    I don’t think that she’s pregnant for him because if she’s pregnant for him and loved him, she won’t play this dirtiest politics and aired their dirty laundry outside in the media. As far as what i read in the news, KHJ said he will rather be a bachelor with a kid. I do not wish him to marry her. That’s what they call living in bondage marriage. She already shows that she’s too manipulative and fame seeking. After destroying his reputation, I’m sure he’s not planning on marrying her. Maybe he just needed to sort out the question that everyone is asking ‘ Is Choi really pregnant?’
    The public couldn’t digest or understand how old the pregnancy is. ( February 23@ 11 weeks and February 27 th @ 16weeks) both interviews were given by her and her lawyer. I’ve never heard that pregnancy jumped within 4 or 5 days. When the she and her lawyer knows that the whole world is talking about the inconclusive dates, then they went silent. Now the lawyer is talking about privacy, where is the privacy when they humiliated KHJ and his parent. They’re caught. Woman scorned. KHJ please do not marry this woman.

    I never believed her abused evidence or story either. She forged everything. She’s just desperate to marry him.

    If really you’re indeed abused, why did you have to go back to him? You have been dating him for 2 years as she said, but you never got pregnant during then, but only got pregnant when you get back with him after you accused him of abused? Hmmm! Something tells me that there’s more to meet the eyes. She doesn’t want to let go of kim hyun joong. She’s pathetic and a pathological liar. She needs to look for another victim.

    I agree with Andi. KHJ is immature and very irresponsible because he has his agency and his parents All speaking out on his behalf! He is so insulated that he cannot/will not handle things in his own life! It might be in the best interest of the baby to not be put in the spotlight of KHJ, however I think Ms. Choi will continue to try and hold on to whatever she can get out of her disturbing relationship with KHJ! All of their private issues are out there for the world to comment on! Actually both KHJ and Choi need to go through some kind of counseling/therapy to help them resolve and mend their situation for the good of the child they are bringing into this world!

    I’m a big fan of KHJ. I dont really care about his private problem. As we a human, we have our privat problem that we should solve it by ourselve. All I know is that good people is not the one who never fault but the one who admited hiS fault and try his best to resolve it. And KHJ oppa, I know you’re a nice guy. Please be strong, and keep showing your best! solve your problems well and never forget that so many people arround this world love you, oppa~ FIGHTIIIIING

    I have never been a fan of him, and I have never watched any of his performances or dramas because first, he is not that appealing, and second I have always seen him as a pretty face with no talent. I’m changing my mind, he is more than a pretty face, he is a woman beater. Some fans in this comment section are as delusional as the young lady who felt in love with him and kept being abused by him. She is still hoping for him to change, giving him multiple chances, and his fans are doing the same. Pathetic. He needs to seek help, so does the lady and the fans who will stay by his side not matter what he does. Be strong KHJ, even if you were a child abuser, I will still root for you and support you, you are just so innocent and life is rough, you are just too pure for the real world, I will cheer on you forever. Disgusting and disturbing.
