However, according to a representative of SM Entertainment, while they are of age to join the army, plans have not yet been made for them to enlist.
Because of this, their fifth album "Mr. Simple" is expected to be Super Junior's last album in a while. Once fans heard of the news, they commented that they felt this album was more meaningful to them.
Since this could be their last album, Super Junior is planning a world tour.
During their August 4th press conference for "Mr. Simple", Leeteuk stated that as this might be the last album, they will try to promote their album for as long as possible.
Leeteuk also commented that as he is a Korean man, it is his duty to join the army. Although he has some fearful feelings, he doesn't feel highly pressured. He also expressed his hopes that his fans would patiently wait for their next comeback after the army.
