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.
He began to be known in China for his brief appearance in SBS' "Secret Garden" and gained further popularity after starring in "City Hunter" last year with Lee Min-ho.
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
