Another South Korean celebrity is conscripting.
Actor Joo Won, famed for his role in K-Dramas such as “Good Doctor”, “Bridal Mask”, and “Cantabile Tomorrow”, has officially enlisted in the army. He entered the army recruit training center today (Tuesday, 16th May) quietly.
He will be starting his service at a center located in Gangwon province. After receiving the basic army training, the actor will be serving in active duty for 21 months. He’s expected to be discharged in early 2019.
In the press conference for his latest drama “My Sassy Girl” held yesterday (Monday, 15th May), the actor also shared his thoughts about joining the military. “I’m enlisting immediately tomorrow. I feel strange. I feel better tahn what I anticipated. I also feel calm and comfortable,” he revealed.
Hours later, he took to Instagram to post a photo of several fan projects supporting his drama, along with the message, “I love my fans. Please stay healthy and don’t worry (about me).”
We know you’ll miss the guy, but don’t fret. His drama “My Sassy Girl” has finished production and will air its first episode on 29th March. Subsequent episodes will be aired weekly on Monday and Tuesday.
