Actor Lee Jong-suk’s agency responded the recent rumor about the actor’s enlistment on February 28.
On February 2, the actor’s agency A-MAN Project denied the rumor about his military enlistment. According to the agency, the rumor is rather baseless.
“He is planning to join the military sometime in the first half of this year,” said an official from the agency. “It is true that he will replace his service as a social service agent, but other things are yet to be decided.”
Earlier that day, a press media released that Lee Jong-suk is starting his social service on February 28.
When he was in middle school, the actor was seriously injured by a car accident. Due to the injury, he is to replace his military service as a social service agent.
Currently, Lee Jong-suk stars in a romantic comedy drama, “Romance Supplement.”
