Korean actor Ko Joo-won will enter the army next week as part of fulfilling the country's two-year mandatory military service, according to his agency Open-World Entertainment on Monday.

Open-World explained that starting November 18, the 29-year-old actor will undergo four weeks of basic training at Nonsan training camp in South Chungcheong Province and then work as a public service worker for the remainder of his service.

"I was cautious since I was summoned for reservist duty but as a Korean citizen it is an obligation to fulfill my military duties," Ko was quoted as saying in the statement.

Ko Joo-won, whose real name is Ko Young-chul, made his debut in 2003 through SBS drama "Punch."

He became a household name in the country with his role in "The Infamous Chill Sister" and has appeared in several more dramas ever since including "My Lady," "OB & GY" and most recently in the historic epic "King Su-ro."
