Top actor Lee Jong Suk has received his official military enlistment date, which has been confirmed to be March 8.
His agency A-MAN Project has confirmed that he will be enlisting as a public service worker, due to a major injury he suffered when he was 16 years old. When he was young, he was involved in a major traffic accident, which tore a ligament in his knee, and required lots of rehabilitation.
“Lee Jong Suk will begin his military service on March 8 as a public service worker. He will carry out his duties to the country in good faith.”

Currently, Lee Jong Suk is starring in the tvN drama Romance Is a Bonus Book with Lee Na Young, but he will complete filming for the drama before his enlistment. The final filming for the drama is set to be on February 27. His final filming will be earlier than the other actors, who will finish filming in early March. He will also be filming one final CF before his enlistment.
Lee Jong Suk’s expected military discharge date will be January 2, 2021.
