[Updated w/ SM Statement] Super Junior’s Choi Siwon Reported to Enlist in Army During Second Half of This Year
Soon after the announcement that Super Junior member Choi Siwon has been confirmed to star in the upcoming MBC drama “She Was Pretty,” an exclusive report by Ilgan Sports has revealed that he is planning to begin his military service later this year, with “She Was Pretty” possibly being his last project.
A broadcast insider is reported to have said, “Choi Siwon is preparing to enlist in the army during the second half of this year, although the exact time frame has not been decided yet. He has a healthy body and has always expressed his strong willingness to serve as an active duty soldier.”
The source continued, “Siwon will work hard and wrap up the MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘She Was Pretty,’ which begins airing in September, before enlisting.”
If his enlistment is confirmed, this will make Siwon the seventh member of Super Junior to carry out his military service.
Are you sad to hear this news?
On July 30, a representative of SM Entertainment responded to the reports of Siwon’s possible enlistment: “Nothing has been confirmed yet. We are currently coordinating the time frame. At this time, filming for the drama ‘She Was Pretty” is more important. Once the production ends, a more definite plan [for enlistment] will be set.”
