Taecyeon has enlisted for active service today (September 4th) on the 9th anniversary of 2PM's debut.
He was careful not to reveal the details of enlistment during 2PM's V LIVE broadcast yesterday, and enlisted quietly today in the presence of his family and fellow 2PM members.
Taecyeon had to make an effort to enlist, having to give up his American citizenship. He was qualified to do public service due to a herniated lower back disc, but after surgery and therapy he was deemed eligible for active service.
JYP Entertainment confirmed, "It's true he is enlisting today."
Ok Taecyeon debuted in 2008 and has been active in both 2PM and as an actor. His last project before enlistment was the OCN drama Save Me.

The short 8-episode drama is the newest project from PD Lee Yoon-jung of Cheese in the Trap and Coffee Prince, and tells the story of an investigative broadcast news team called Argon. Kim Joo-hyuk plays Argon’s team leader and the face of his network, an idealist who treats his responsibility to deliver the truth like his life depends on it. While the public only sees him as a trustworthy anchor and a gentleman in a suit, behind the scenes he’s a picky perfectionist who gets called the devil by his staff because he works them into the ground.
Chun Woo-hee plays a reporter who gets transferred to the Argon team with only three months left on her temporary contract. She’s got average specs but boundless energy and passion for the job, and she’s a conspiracy theorist who believes that her insatiable curiosity is her greatest asset. The drama is about her growth as she joins the Argon team and gets grilled and trained to within an inch of her life by Kim Joo-hyuk, and comes out a real reporter on the other side.

Argon premieres Monday, September 4.

This show being only 8 episodes is definitely a selling point to me. There should be more short dramas like this.
Earlier today, Taecyeon privately enlisted into the Korean Army. There was no press present, so there were no photos from the media. Taecyeon was joined by his family, fellow 2PM members, and several the staff members who are close to him, including some of 2PM's former managers. Several kind souls who were also in attendance, sending off their own sons and brothers, shared a few photos and videos on Twitter.

I'm dying at that first video. I'm so proud of him. And I'm glad that the other boys were there to see him off. Apparently, the division he's training with (White Horse Division) is close to the DMZ. We're not sure which unit he'll end up in, but either way, I hope he stays safe and has very little to no issue. He looks happy and proud, and that makes me feel better. And you guys... he looks SO good! I'll probably start actually missing him in a few weeks.

Synopsis: A girl is surrounded by suspicious people and quietly whispers, “Save me!” in a dark neighborhood alleyway, and a couple of unemployed youths hear her and run to her rescue. They discover that she’s trapped in some kind of pseudo-religious cult and try to help her, but what ensues is a sequence of horrifying tension-filled events that make us wonder more about the science of the human psyche.

Edit: Added Jimin's tweet.
Filming for MBC's 2017 Idol Star Athletics Championships has been cancelled due to the current strike being held by union members of public broadcasters KBS and MBC.
The company-wide strike is calling for the resignation of MBC president Kim Jang Gyum. “Infinite Challenge” and “I Live Alone” will be temporarily off air. The 2017 DMC Festival has also been canceled, and filming for MBC’s upcoming drama “20th Century Boy and Girl” has been put on hold. Furthemore, “Music Core” has been confirmed to temporarily be off air as well.
For those interested, you can read this post & this twitter thread to learn more on what the strike is about:

sunmi's backup dancers look like they're having so much fun during the switch part, tbh! i wanted to post just guk-joo's back when it was posted but i'm—now—really content that i didn't. i love every version of it. (guk-joo posted one of “BABE” on her insta, too, and the other two dancers are tagged in that one!)
