Unconfirmed reports have been widely circulated about the possibility of beloved actor Song Joong Ki enlisting in the army as soon as this August.
On June 20, OSEN reporters began to spread word that Song Joong Ki was in the midst of preparing for an August enlistment, therefore he would no longer be able to take on any more roles in upcoming dramas this year.
Song Joong Ki’s agency representatives were quick to respond and deny the rumors, stating, “We haven’t received any form of a written order. We don’t know ourselves if Song Joong Ki will have to enlist this August or later this year. Once we know the official date, we will be sure to let the public know.”
Netizens who read about the actor’s possible enlistment commented, “How could Song Joong Ki suddenly leave for his enlistment?”, “It’s such a shame that he’ll have to enlist at the height of his career”, “Wow, I guess Song Joong Ki hasn’t enlisted yet?” and “I’m sure many fans would cry if Song Joong Ki had to leave.”
