Minoz (as Lee Min Ho’s fans are affectionately known), your favourite oppa has finally started his mandatory military service today (12th May)!
According to Soompi, Lee Min Ho (이민호) will be working as a public service worker at Gangnam’s government office in Seoul. It was reported that he will receive basic military training after finishing his public service work in the city. He will end his service in 2019.
Lee was assigned to be a public service worker instead of active duty soldier due to a 2006 car accident with Jung Il Woo, where he suffered from a fractured ankle and had to spend months bedridden. The “City Hunter” actor also had a metal rod inserted into his right leg, but it was eventually removed in 2009.
This morning, many fans greeted him when he appeared in front of the government office for his first day. Dressed in a white tee and a light-coloured jacket, the actor wore a black mask.
Lee Min Ho officially made his debut as an actor in 2003, but only got popular in 2009 due to his role as Goo Jun Pyo in K-Drama “Boys Over Flowers”. Since then, he has acted in “Personal Taste”, “City Hunter”, and “The Heirs” – all of which gained a large following. His most recent work was SBS’ “The Legend Of The Blue Sea”, which starred “My Love From The Star” actress Jun Ji Hyun.
We’ll miss you, oppa 🙁 We’ll see you in 2 years!
