A Korean idol star with a buzz cut definitely isn’t a sight you see every day.

Here are photos of celebrities who shaved their head to serve their two-year mandatory military duty this year, sporting more mature, manly looks.

Some of these celebrities are dapper with a crew-cut, while others failed to pull off the look.

1. Kim Hyun-joong

Kim did not reveal a full image of his buzz cut, but it’s Kim Hyun-joong. It can‘t be bad.

2. Park Yu-chun of JYJ

He still gets extra points for the cute smile.

3. Park Ji-bin

Maybe it‘s difficult for him to ditch his teen heartthrob image even with his shorn ’do.

4. Kim Jae-joong of JYJ


It’s a nice list of best buzz cuts, but someone has to win. And it‘s got to be Kim Jae-joong.

5. Eunhyuk of Super Junior

We like it all the same, but he just looks better with a little more hair.

6. U-Know Yunho of TVXQ

Hair made for stroking and drooling over, perfectly formed.

7. Shindong of Super Junior

It‘s nice. He gets extra marks for making us laugh.
