South Korea is still officially at war with North Korea and Kim Jeong-Eun, the North Korean leader, regularly threatens to attack the South to various extents.
South Korea has a mandatory military service. In short,
- All men, between the age of 18 and 35 years old, have to do their services for about 2 years.
- After conscription, every man is automatically placed on reserve roster. Men have to attend yearly training and can be called to serve in the army in case of need.
How would conscripts and reservists be mobilized and used in case of an active war between both Koreas?
The possibility of war has been an important matter in South Korea for decades. Have the people (South Korean president/government and/or Commander in Chief of the Korean army) in charge of the military strategy against North Korea ever made any public statement about the role of military service?
