So reports are that Sang Moon Bae lost his appeal to the Korean Military Service and must now return to Korea to serve two years in the military. Such a disappointing event to a young man who had the potential to have a great career?

Fair or unjust???

Fair - because it applies to all South Korean men

Unfair - because South Korean women have no such mandatory national service, military or otherwise.

I agree as well to a degree. From a political standpoint it makes sense, however from a social aspect as a young Korean youth this could impact the game of golf. There will still be the same amount of influx of new youth to the game, however this thought of being pulled from your dream would always be in the back of the mind, or forefront.

I was like Golf Bae? Like Golf BABE? I was disappointed that it wasn't a hot golfer chick.

It sucks but, it is what it is. If thats a duty you have to fulfill, then you have to do it. Its unfortunate considering his circumstances certainly, but life isnt always fair

It sounds like fair game to me. All Korean male have to perform that duty. Plus, chances are, he will be stationed at a golf course caters to the big honchos in the Korean government.
