To the sadness of netizens and fans, actor Seo Kang Joon has been confirmed to be gearing up to start his mandatory military service within this month.

Seo Kang Joon is a popular Korean actor and singer who was a former member of the actor group 5urprise, the first actor group consisting of Yoo Il, Seo Kang Joon, Gong Myung, Kang Tae Oh and Lee Tae-hwan. 

Seo Kang Joon gained popularity due to his role in the series "Cheese in the Trap" in 2016 and has since followed up with brilliant performances in "Entourage" in 2016 as well, "Are You Human Too?" in 2018, "The Third Charm" in 2018, "Watcher" in 2019, and "When The Weather Is Fine" previously in 2020.

On the 8th of November, an industry insider revealed that Seo Kang Joon is enlisting as an active-duty soldier on November 23. This comes to no one's surprise as the actor is 28 years old and is nearing the end of the window for his mandatory enlistment.

Not long after the reports surfaced, Seo Kang Joon's agency, Man of Creation, dropped the following announcement:

"Hello. This is Man of Creation.

Seo Kang Joon is enlisting on November 23 to carry out his mandatory service. 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, so we ask for your generous understanding.

Please show support so Seo Kang Joon can carry out his mandatory service in good health.

Thank you."

Notably, actor Seo Kang Joon has confirmed to have finished filming for his new drama entitled "Grid" and new movie entitled "Happy New Year," which are both slated to be dropped next year in 2022.

Fans and netizens wish Seo Kang Joon good luck and a safe and fast mandatory military service!
