Earlier in 2012, Kim Soo Hyun was declared unfit for his active military duty because of his heart condition. At that time, the actor was just 20 years old.
After being disqualified for the active post, Kim started working towards improvement of his bad health in order to be posted to active duty. It was back in 2015 that the actor underwent health checkup once again and was found fit for the active duty.
The news of Kim Soo Hyun enlisting was first broke by his agency Keyeast Entertainment on 28th September 2017. After five weeks of training, Kim will be assigned to a unit where he will serve for 21 months and will be discharged from his duties on July 22, 2019.
