life as an assistant instructor
·Usually, the assistant instructors start the day about an hour earlier than the regular trainees.
·Sometimes I wait 24 hours a day even after my daily routine is over.
·Not to mention preparing for the next day’s education, but also working on duty in turn, so there is little personal time for assistant instructors during the recruitment training period.
·Unexpected unexpected situations occur while managing hundreds of trainees
·Mr. A, who served as an assistant instructor in the recruitment education team
“Since about 16 assistant instructors will train up to 300 trainees in eight platoons in the first term, we should always be careful of trainees who act suddenly.”
“·The “”compensation leave”” that assistant instructors get after completing the first term of recruitment education is also attractive.”
·Assistant instructors usually train for six terms with 18 months of military service, so they can take an average of 18 days more vacation than ordinary soldiers.

reason why celebrities are better suited to teaching assistant instructors
·Experts believe that the showmanship included in the job of entertainer is close to the role of assistant instructor.

·The assistant instructor is the first face of the army that the trainee faces as soon as he joins the army.
·Celebrities’ affinity and trust are also effective in training recruits.

※That’s it for the article.

other possible reasons for entertainers to become assistant instructors
·Because of my profession, I can make a loud voice that goes well with me.
·Most people join the army late and become nearly 30 years old, so they are much older than other recruits around 20 years old.
·public look up to the celebrities
·Therefore, it is easy to give instructions.
·It’s safe to live in the unit.
↑ Implicit consideration

The declining birthrate is the most serious in the world in Korea.
The shortage of soldiers is a major problem.

As a result, criticism is mounting over the exemption of artists and athletes from military service.
BTS members weren’t exempt either.

There are also discussions about increasing the number of female soldiers and recruiting women.

If Jin had been an assistant in the recruitment training of female soldiers, the number of applicants would skyrocket

Is the shortage of soldiers solved?
