In this regard, many netizens have recently discussed the issue of military service in South Korea again, and some international students bluntly said, “I don’t want to go back to serve as a soldier, so I decided to work in Taiwan.”

A netizen asked on the PTT gossip board, “Are Koreans also fighting to be exempted from military service?” He said that a famous classmate of his in college was South Korean, saying that most male students in the country would take a break from college in their sophomore year to serve in the military. I will not be out of touch with society for 2 years, and my classmates even confessed that they came to Taiwan to study in university because they didn’t want to be a soldier.
In addition, the original PO also mentioned that his classmates pointed out that more than 100 people in South Korea commit suicide in the military every year. Due to severe bullying and no two days off per week, the two-year military service is like hell and is different from Taiwanese culture. , the mutiny rate in South Korea is 100%, which means that if the woman knows that her boyfriend is going to join the army, she will definitely break up with him.
In response to this, netizens left messages saying, “No human being would want to be a soldier”, “Who likes to be forced to be a soldier? It’s the same all over the world”, “The trouble is that public opinion does not allow you to escape, deserters will be punished by society” “Death”, “(Being a soldier) is really a waste of life, and you can’t make any money”; and some people pointed out, “It’s 18 months now, less than 2 years”, “Korea is very particular about age, seniors and juniors “It’s super scary”, “South Korean military service pay is less”, “They work for 2 years, and they are very tough, unlike us who are all sweeping the floor.”
