The public has been showing interest in the celebrities that will be discharged from the military by the end of this year following actor Ji Hyun Woo’s discharge after completing his military service on May 6.
This coming July, actor Lee Je Hoon, Kim Moo Yeol, Super Junior’s Leeteuk, and more will be finishing up their mandatory service. Lee Je Hoon enlisted in October of 2012 and is currently serving in the Seoul Metropolitan Police Special Promotional Unit. It has been reported that the actor has already begun receiving many scripts and synopses even before his official discharge.
Kim Moo Yeol, who was recently caught up in a controversy surrounding his medical leave of absences, will also be getting discharged in July as planned. His agency explained that it was not a prolonged leave and the actor was actually put on standby to return to his unit after injuring his knee.
Leeteuk is expected to be discharged on July 29. As a Super Junior member, he is the third member to enlist in the army following Kangin and Heechul. It is said that Sungmin will be the next member to enlist. Also, singer Lee Hyun of 8eight, who entered the army around the same time as Leeteuk, will finish up his service this year as well.
Might Mouth’s Sangchu was discharged from the Armed Forces Hospital last month and will be returning to civilian society at the beginning of August. During his long-term hospital stay for six months, he was accused of preferential treatment. However, a representative from Sangchu’s side stated, “After Sangchu received two surgeries on his shoulder and ankle from an outside hospital, he was admitted to the Armed Forces Hospital in order to get physical therapy. His situation is said to be bad enough to be considered for an early discharge from service due to medical reasons.”
It appears that not only the fans, but also those in the industry are all welcoming the news of military discharges of these talented stars.
We hope that these celebrities that have served for two years will return with a more mature image and will actively promote in their respective fields!
