Lee Jun-hyuk [Wellmade STARM]
Korean actor Lee Jun-hyuk will enter a boot camp next week before he begins the two-year mandatory military service, his agency Wellmade STARM revealed on Wednesday.
Wellmade announced in a press statement that Lee will fulfill his two-year service as an active duty soldier in the Gyeonggi Province in South Korea starting June 19.
"I hope to return to the business as a better person after two years. I will work hard to complete my military duty and thank my fans for always supporting me," Lee was quoted as saying.
Ahead of his enlistment, Lee had a dinner with select 50 fans last weekend where he communicated, gave his autographs and took pictures with the attended fans.
Lee first made his debut by appearing in a music video in 2006 and has since appeared in over half a dozen dramas and several movies.
The actor officially starred his Chinese activities by starring in China’s HunanTV’s mini-series “50% of a Fairytale" (translated title) with Chinese actors Janine Chang and Zixiao Zhu.
Lee's last starrer before leaving is KBS' "Man From the Equator," in which he played the role of Lee Jang-il opposite Uhm Tae-woon
