Recently, Lee Joon who was born in 1988 and Lee Jong Suk born in 1989, are becoming the main public’s attention on the topic of military serivce. Lee Joon, who is enjoying the peak of his popularity through KBS 2TV’s ‘My Father is Strange’ weekend drama, which got a 30% rating, has confirmed to join military service on October 24, 2017. The drama he plays will end at the end of this month, and Lee Joon will take a short break before following the draft.
On the other hand, Lee Jong Suk had received a summon to attend military service on August 10, but he postponed it one week before the appointed time. In this case,Lee Jong Suk gave a statement, “I feel sorry because I signed up later than my colleagues, and I understand that it is something I should do as a Korean person,” he said.
The agency explained that Lee Jong Suk decided to postpone the draft due to fulfilling his responsibilities as a movie actor ‘V.I.P’ which will be released on August 24th, and the actor in the SBS drama ‘While you were Sleeping’ which will air from September. At the same time, he insisted to be careful to join other works.
Lee Joon reminds fans with some of the top stars who left in his ‘peak of popularity’ to follow the draft. Kyun Bin, Song Joong Ki and other actors joined military service while at the peak of popularity, and fulfilled national defense duties to maintain public trust.
