In order to better prepare for the conflicts of the future, the RoK extends compulsory military service across all branches of the military to 36 months from the varied numbers for their branches. This will help to aid in retention rates of their military in the event of foreign aggression. All compulsory service will however remain in effect for males only. A proposed budget increase to a flat 15% of annual government budget follows this announcement.
Edit: Ignore the funding increase number. 15% of government spending is the current number. I had pulled the information from an older article apparently. Conscription service extension still stands.
