Seo Kang Joon Shares Update In Live Broadcast Ahead Of Upcoming Military Enlistment

Seo Kang Joon shared a final update for fans ahead of his military enlistment!

On November 18, Seo Kang Joon held a live broadcast on Instagram where he proudly stated, “I’m going! In order to fulfill my military duty, which every healthy Korean man must do, I’m going to the military soon. I wanted to share my final farewell before enlisting.”

As his broadcast was held on the same day as the 2022 College Scholastic Ability Test (CSAT), Seo Kang Joon asked his viewers, “I wonder if there’s anyone here who took the CSAT. It’s been exactly 10 years since I wrote it. After it was over, I had strong feelings of ‘I crossed a river that will not come back.’ I remember feeling really regretful that I couldn’t say ‘I wrote the test without regrets because I prepared well.'”

He continued, “I also felt empty. The CSAT ends your elementary, middle, and high school life. I had a lot of concerns regarding ‘What should I do moving forward?’ However, the CSAT is not everything in life. Even to those who feel regretful, it’s over anyway, so don’t get too stressed and I hope you spend the remainder of your twenties well. You’ve worked hard preparing for the CSAT.”

The actor also commented on his short haircut, saying, “Honestly, I’d wanted to cut my hair short like this for a while but I cut it now because I had the opportunity. I’m satisfied. What do you guys think?”

One fan asked, “Can’t you not go?” Seo Kang Joon lightheartedly responded, “I can’t. I’d be in big trouble.” He added, “Since it’s my first time enlisting, I did feel really scared and lost at first but I feel more comfortable now. I don’t know if you’ll believe me but I’m even excited. I started to think, ‘What kind of people will I meet and what kind of lifestyle will I live for one and a half years? What kind of life will I live?’ I am basically using it as my resolution each day.”

Seo Kang Joon shared, “I’m also preparing to become a morning person. I’ve begun sleeping a bit earlier. These days, I sleep around 2 or 3 a.m. They say you sleep around 10 p.m. in the military. Although it won’t be easy, I figure that I’ll adjust once I’m there. Humans are creatures of habit and I’m also quick to adjust. People around me have been saying, ‘You’ll do well. Don’t worry.’ I’m not pitiful at all. I have drive in this situation.”

After explaining that he wasn’t going to bow to his parents because he didn’t want them to cry, Seo Kang Joon jokingly added, “My older sister who I don’t really love is not in Korea right now. I don’t think my sister will be able to see me off so I figure I’ll just text her once before I go. It’s been a few months since I’ve talked to my sister. We’re brother-like siblings so we don’t talk often.”

For the many fans who are going to miss him, Seo Kang Joon made sure to promote his projects set to air in the new year. He explained, “There were a few people who thought I was leaving without having filmed anything. I filmed Disney+’s ‘Grid‘ [previously known as ‘Zero’] and there’s also the movie ‘Happy New Year.’ I think they’ll be released early next year so please look forward to them.”

Lastly, he commented, “More than anything, I hope you are healthy. I’m spending the last of my twenties in a new place. When I return from my military duties, I’ll be moving into my thirties and I’m internally looking forward thinking, ‘Won’t there be more diverse images?’ Since you’re only your age once in life, I hope you live diligently, doing what you want. I will return well, brave and healthy.”

Seo Kang Joon will enlist on November 23 as an active duty soldier. For safety and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, there will be no official event, and his enlistment location and time will not be revealed.
