Jang Ki Yong Enlists In The Military + Co-Stars Bid Him Farewell

Jang Ki Yong is beginning his military service!

On August 23, Jang Ki Yong’s agency YG Entertainment shared, “Please cheer on Jang Ki Yong, who will return in good health after diligently completing his military duty.” The enlistment location and time have not been revealed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Ahead of his enlistment, Jang Ki Yong uploaded a handwritten letter on Instagram along with a black-and-white photo of himself with his new short haircut.

The letter reads as follows:

Hello. This is Jang Ki Yong.

I was able to spend my 20s happily thanks to the people who have loved and supported me until now.

I sincerely thank you.

I’ll return strong and healthy for another amazing [time in my] 30s.

Thank you everyone, and I love you.

Kim Do Wan, who co-starred in “My Roommate Is a Gumiho” with Jang Ki Yong, also posted a selfie of the two together and wrote, “Take good care of your health. I’ll miss you.”

Until his enlistment, Jang Ki Yong was busy filming for “Now, We Are Breaking Up,” which is slated to premiere in November. After wrapping up filming, Jang Ki Yong also pre-recorded the press conference for the drama.
