Actor Lee Min Ki will soon be returning from his mandatory military service.
On August 2, a representative from the Seoul district office clarified earlier reports that had announced his discharge, saying, “Although reports had said he would be released on August 3, it was incorrect and he will actually be discharged on August 6.”
Lee Min Ki had entered the army in August of 2014 and has been working as a public service worker. He had been embroiled in a sexual assault scandal earlier in the year and despite being acquitted of the charges, his casting offer for an upcoming tvN drama “Tomorrow With You,” starring alongside Shin Min Ah, had fallen through. As a result, there is a lot of attention on whether the scandal will continue to affect his return to society.
