Lee Jong Suk Enlists As A Public Service Worker
Lee Jong Suk is the next actor to begin his mandatory service.
On March 8, he enlisted at an undisclosed district office to begin his service. As he suffered a ruptured ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) from a car accident when he was 16, he was deemed unfit for service as an active duty soldier and is serving as a public service worker.
Lee Jong Suk’s enlistment location was not revealed, but many reporters and fans still gathered. As a result, he signed his official documents in the underground parking lot instead of the office.
His agency shared, “Lee Jong Suk’s actual service location is not this district office but a different affiliated organization,” and explained, “He was on his way to the district office to submit the necessary documents, and as there were many people including reporters, the district office showed consideration. As he just had to sign documents, the district office took care to avoid commotion.”
The agency added, “After signing, he went to his service location.”
Lee Jong Suk will begin serving as a public service worker before entering a training center and receiving basic military training, as well.
He is set to be discharged from his service on January 2, 2021.
