GOT7’s BamBam Exempt From Thailand’s Military Service Thanks To Quota Being Met
GOT7’s BamBam is now exempt from Thailand’s military service.
Each year, Thailand holds a lottery to determine the new recruits. Men gather around each April to draw a card out of the box to determine their fate. If the card is red, the Thai citizen will service for a designated period of time, if it is black, he is exempt. Citizens can also volunteer to service in place of taking part of the lottery.
This year, GOT7’s BamBam took part in the process, and after passing the medical examination, he awaited he chance. During his wait, the required number of recruits was reached thanks to volunteer, which allowed him to be exempt. He will not have to serve in the military.
Earlier this month NCT’s Ten, thankfully, had similar results, unfortunately due to not passing the medical examination.
