Kim Soo Hyun also spoke fondly of his experience in the military. “I was initially worried because I was joining the army at a slightly older age than others,” he shared, “but I think that I absolutely made the right decision in joining the first Reconnaissance Battalion.”
He continued, “While I was in the military, I trained hard just like any other soldier, and I was even awarded the title of ‘Special Class Soldier.'” He added with a smile, “I worked hard and did my very best.”
In response to a question about which girl groups had given him the most strength during his time in the military, Kim Soo Hyun revealed, “Actually, I stayed up to date on all of the new songs and watched every single one of them. I think I watched music videos every morning.”
As for his future plans, Kim Soo Hyun remarked, “I thought a lot and worried about many things during my time in the military, but right now, I really want to act. Nothing has been decided yet in terms of projects, but I think I’ll be working hard and greeting you through new projects starting around next year or so.”
