Yet another artiste from SM Entertainment is going to enlist in the army this year :(
Super Junior recently made a comeback with the release of “Devil“, a special album that commemorated their 10th anniversary since their debut. While ELFs (as fans of Super Junior are lovingly known) celebrate the occasion, Korean media outlet Ilgan Sport exclusively reported that member Siwon is planning to enter the army soon.
The report came after a rep from SM Entertainment announced that Siwon is working on his small screen comeback via an upcoming MBC drama “She Was Pretty”. It was also recently reported that he is going to try his hand at producing.
According to Ilgan Sport, a broadcaster insider said:
Choi Siwon is preparing to enlist in the army during the 2nd half of this year, although the exact time frame has not been decided yet. He has a healthy body and has always expressed his strong willingness to serve as an active duty soldier.
This may mean that “She Was Pretty” might be his last project before his impending military service.
The source added:
Siwon will work hard and wrap up the MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama “She Was Pretty”, which begins airing in September, before enlisting.
In response, SM Entertainment confirmed the news stating:
Choi Siwon will be enlisting after he completes the MBC drama “She Was Pretty”. The exact time period hasn’t been decided on yet. After he wraps up his drama, he’ll prepare and enter the military as an active duty soldier.
The “Dragon Blade” star will be the 7th SuJu member to enlist in the army.
Are we the only ones who are saddened by this piece of news? :( Will you miss Siwon too?
