We all knew this day was coming. As of March 28th 2017, Seo In Guk officially entered the mandatory South Korean military for two very long years. I imagine I am not the only Heartrider, sitting at my computer devastated at the thought that my bias will not be in new dramas, music videos, or any other form of media entertainment for 24 months. So I thought it would be useful to write out in words how I am going to survive this horrible time in my life.
** Since I started writing this post, Seo In Guk’s service has been postponed due to a physical problem with his ankle. Sadly, this probably won’t mean he is working anytime soon. It will probably go one of two ways. Either his MS will just be postponed until he heals or is placed a type of service that will not be a problem with his ailment (Which means that the two-year countdown will still be in effect, if not longer due to the delay.) Or Seo In Guk will be released but the crazy netizen outrage when it comes to celebrities not completing military service comes into effect and he might have to wait out the two years regardless because of fan pressure. I know that seems crazy, but we just saw the same thing happen with Choi Jin Hyuk who had to wait a year after being released before fans allowed him to come back. Netizen power is one of those crazy forces when it comes to South Korean entertainment. So since I will still have to go Seo In Gukless regardless of how this pans out, I decided to go on with this post.
Binge-watch my favorite Seo In Guk dramas
If you add up all the Seo In Guk drama episodes you have a good 121 hours of Seo In Guk. That is not counting Rascal Sons since I would rather watch several of his dramas a 2nd time than sit through that show again. Rewatching Seo In Guk in all the scenes that made me fall in love with him in the first place is a great way to spend time while I await his return. You can never have enough SIG.
Make a Seo In Guk music playlist
I plan on doing this as soon as I get a bit of time to really fall down the Seo In Guk MV rabbit hole on YouTube. Until then, here are a few of my favorites to get you started.
Lament with other Seo In Guk fans
I know that we have a lot of Seo In Guk fans and Heartriders that read the blog so this is a great place to start. Feel free to throw in a SIG comment on any blog post, even if it has nothing to do with SIG. I promise to always answer.
Or go on Facebook, Twitter, or any other form of social media and hunt down the Seo In Guk fanpages. It is a great place to meet like-minded Fangirls who just want to adore all things Seo In Guk. Spending the time with friends who know what you are going through helps one through the pain of separation.
Continue watching dramas from other biases
I know this is hard, but Korean dramas provide us with a plethora of hot men to help distract us from our misery. It helps the time go faster as we wait for our #1 bias.
Start a Daily Countdown
Yes, I really did… because Seo In Guk deserves a countdown clock! Click the link below to check out how long til his release. I am sure the time will go go by quickly. ****This countdown will be fixed once we know for sure what is going to happen to our beloved SIG.
Those of us here at DWASOK wish Seo In Guk the best in his current recovery and endeavor and look forward to seeing him back on our TVs in 2019.
