It’s only the first month of 2016, but it’s already time to say goodbye to Lee Seung Gi as the Korean actor-singer will be enlisting in the military next month.
His agency Hook Entertainment announced today (21st January) that Seung Gi will go on a 2-year hiatus as he will enter the Korean army as an active duty soldier on 1st February.
After getting his enlistment notice, the singer thanked fans for their undying love and support in a press statement.
I will come back as a real man to thank all the love and support I got for all these years.
“I was preparing myself for enlistment since I don’t know when the notice will come out. Since I can’t meet each and every person, I expressed my apology in the song,” he continued.
Seung Gi also released a new track ahead of his enlistment.
Titled “I’m Going to the Army”, the song is about “confessing to the person he loves right before entering the army”.
“This song is my story, but I hope it will be relatable to anyone planning to enter the military soon and their families,” Seung Gi further explained.
