Kim Rae Won Is Back to Civilian Life


Kim Rae Won was discharged from military service on Monday, August 22nd, with a simple announcement from his management company but no ceremonial event.

The actor’s agency Bless Entertainment told local media that Kim has successfully completed his two-year mandatory service after his entry into the Nonsan training camp in 2009.  He returns to civilian life on Tuesday, August 23rd.  Kim is expected to begin work for the upcoming SBS drama “A Thousand Days’ Promise,” in which he plays the lead role opposite Su Ae.

“A Thousand Days’ Promise,” written by famed scenarist Kim Soo Hyun, is about a woman who is slowly losing her memory.  The drama replaces current Monday-Tuesday ratings winner, the Yoo Seung Ho-starring historical drama “Warrior Baek Dong Soo” from September 26th.
