Lee Jun Ki revealed recently that he is enlisting himself for the army next year.
In an interview during the photoshoot of his drama “Iljimae”, he was asked when was he enlisting for the army, he said, “I have many work this year so it’s not possible. The plan now is to enlist next year.” He added, “I don’t have a concrete plan now but I feel that since I have to go eventually and rather than delaying it, I might as well quickly go and then make a return.”
If Lee Jun Ki (born in 1982) enlists himself in the army at the age of 27, it’s kind of late compared to commonfolk. But it’s earlier than most Korean stars who only enlists themselves when they are near 30 years old.
When asked if “Iljimae” would be his last work before enlistment, he said, “I will continue working before my enlistment, thus Iljimae is unlikely to be my last. But I will not delay my enlistment plan just because of work definitely.”
