Lee Chan Hyuk of Akdong Musician has received his military assignment.
On November 2, a source from YG Entertainment revealed, “Lee Chan Hyuk has been assigned to the 1st Marine Division.”
Lee Chan Hyuk enlisted in the Marine Corps on September 18 and received basic training for seven weeks at the Marine Corps training center located in the city of Pohang of Northern Gyeongsang Province. In his statement before enlisting, Lee Chan Hyuk stated, “I don’t think I’m special for enlisting in the military at an age when similarly-aged people are enlisting. I want to be away from work and music for a bit and experience a completely new environment.”
He was spotted in a video message from the 1226-class trainees which was posted on the official Marine Corps blog, and his sister and Akdong Musician member Lee Soo Hyun shared a photo of him as a marine.
We wish Lee Chan Hyuk the best of luck!
