'Suspicious Partner' Actor Ji Chang Wook Partners With Kang Ha Neul, 'Bridal Mask' Star Joo Won, Im Siwan For Special Event
The South Korean star Ji Chang Wook recently made a public appearance where he showcased his singing prowess during a special national event. The Suspicious Partner actor joined Kang Ha Neul, Joo Won and Im Siwan in singing the South Korean national anthem to commemorate military veterans who died during the war and other battles.
Ji Chang Wook, Kang Ha Neul, Bridal Mask star Joo Won and The King in Love actor Im Siwan have been out of the limelight following their entry into the South Korean army in 2017. Part of the mandatory military service required for male citizens of the said Asian country, the four actors have been busy serving as active soldiers where they would sometimes participate in a few musical related activities.
Given the annual observance of South Korea's Memorial Day, the Suspicious Partner star along with Kang Ha Neul, Joo Won, and Im Siwan sang four verses of the country's National Anthem. Held on June 6, the four celebrities were accompanied by the Armed Forces Symphony Orchestra.
Apart from Ji Chang Wook, Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo actor Kang Ha Neul, Joo Won, Im Siwan and members of the South Korean army, the 63rd Memorial Day Commemoration Ceremony was also attended by military veterans, local residents, and several political figures. With around 10,000 people in attendance, South Korean President Moon Jae In was also one of the famous people who graced the event.
The annual commemoration event served as the first time that avid fans saw Ji Chang Wook, Kang Ha Neul, Joo Won and Im Siwan sing together on stage. However, loyal followers of the Healer actor and the Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo star may soon see both celebrities in a military musical.
Titled the Shinheung Military Academy, Ji Chang Wook and Kang Ha Neul both participated in the audition calls for the musical. However, the two actors' casting in the said play has yet to be confirmed. The military musical will tell the story of a group of young people who established a military academy during the 1900s in an effort to wrestle free from the control of the Japanese Imperial Army.
Ji Chang Wook, Kang Ha Neul, Joo Won and Im Siwan entered the military in August 2017, September 2017, May 2017 and July 2017, respectively. The four actors are expected to end their 21-month mandatory service in 2019.
