Lee Na Young Surprises Lee Jong Suk With Sweet Gift Ahead Of Military Enlistment
Earlier this week, Lee Jong Suk announced that he would be enlisting in the military on March 8, approximately one week after his final shoot for tvN’s “Romance is a Bonus Book.”
On February 28, the actor revealed on Instagram that his co-star Lee Na Young had prepared a thoughtful surprise ahead of his enlistment. The actress sent a food truck to the set of the drama specifically for Lee Jong Suk, along with a sweet message cheering him on.
Lee Na Young wrote, “Eun Ho [Lee Jong Suk’s character in the drama], when spring, summer, autumn, and winter have each passed twice [a reference to his two years of mandatory military service], a season with a beautiful moon will come. Be healthy!”
The actress also playfully added a phrase used by Korean soldiers when they stand at attention, before signing the message, “Dani Dani [her character’s name in the drama].”
Lee Jong Suk expressed his gratitude by posting a photo of Lee Na Young’s message and writing, “Thank you so much, noona… this is the first time I’ve ever received a food truck from a co-star…”
He ended the caption with a play on words, writing, “My favorite number is [Lee] Na [Young].” (“Lee” is a homophone for the number two in Korean, while “Young” is a homophone for zero.)
We wish Lee Jong Suk all the best during his service!
