Korean actor Lee Jae-hoon will soon be one of the latest male celebrities to temporarily leave from the screen to enter the military.
Saram Entertainment's C.E.O Lee So-ryeong told the magazine in a phone interview Thursday that Lee will fulfill his two-year mandatory military duties as part of the Seoul Police Agency, upon completing his four week basic training starting October 25.
"Lee applied to serve his duties as a riot police for the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency (SMPA) just like actors Cho Seung-woo and Ryu Soo-young," Lee said.
When asked about his forthcoming schedule before the enlistment, Lee explained that the "Architecture 101" star will continue shooting his films "Ethics of Fury" and "My Papparoti" (both translated titles) and promote his comedy thriller "Fortune Tellers," due out next month.
Lee has been busy with shooting and promoting four movies and a TV series on his plate this year and saw huge commercial success with his feature film "Architecture 101."
