Actor Joo Won has canceled his coming service as a part of a police promotional unit, and will instead be completing his service as an active duty soldier.
A source from the Military Manpower Administration said on September 5, “If things had gone according to the initial plan, Joo Won would have enlisted this past July with the police promotional unit. However, he expressed his wishes to serve as an active duty soldier, and cancelled those plans. He is currently waiting for his enlistment date. We can’t reveal anything now, but his enlistment date will be near year’s end.”
Joo Won’s most recent work was SBS’s “Yong Pal” in 2015, for which he won the grand prize at the SBS Drama Awards.
