This year, we’ve bade goodbye to Lee Min Ho and many other Korean celebrities who had to fulfill their mandatory military duties. The latest actor to join the army is none other than Im Si Wan. The young actor, who catapulted to fame through Misaeng, will be enlisting next Tuesday as an active duty soldier. He will join the recruit training centre at Gyeonggi province.
While he is glad that he is joining the army soon (“…or I would have wasted my time playing,” he said), he’s also looking forward to Girls’ Generation’s Yoona visiting him at camp. They are both currently filming the drama The King Loves.
He told reporters at the press conference, “Even if I were to enlist, Yoona will visit me. She might even be the first one. So I’m not afraid of military life.”
Yoona agreed and said, “I will definitely visit him. If the drama does well, I will meet him in the costume [I wore in the drama].”
