According to news outlet Sports Donga, an insider revealed more details concerning Lee Seung Gi’s impending military enlistment.
Previously, his agency revealed that he would be enlisting on February 1. Now it’s being reported that the star will be heading to Nonsan Army Recruit Training Center in Chungnam. After training there for five weeks he will be dispatched to his assigned role following the completion ceremony.
Therefore, Lee Seung Gi will be spending the Lunar New Year holiday at the training center. Due to the holiday, it is expected that he might have to stay at the training center for a little longer than usual.
The actor-singer commented on his upcoming enlistment earlier and said, “I am deeply thankful for the overwhelming love that I have received. I will return as a real man.”
Meanwhile, his expected discharge date is October 31, 2017.
