Actor Song Joong Ki will be entering the army.Today, Song Joong Ki's agency Blossom Entertainment said, "Song Joong Ki will be entering the boot camp and will enter the army on August 27."
Song Joong Ki thus became the first star to go into the army after the celebrity army was abolished. Song Joong Ki will be going into the Choon Chun 102 base.
The Department of Defense announced on July 18, "It seems that our maintenance had been lacking and we will take responsibility for it. After discussing the matters, we have decided that the celebrity army will be abolished."
Many had been curious if Song Joong Ki will be continuing on his strikes from his movie "Wolf Boy" and KBS2 drama "Innocent Man" or if he will go into the army, taking a break from his popularity. This curiosity often brought rumors, and during last month's rumors, Song Joong Ki's agency had said, "He hadn't even received an enlistment yet. He will be going in when he receives it without delaying it, but it's not happening yet."
