Actor Ji Soo might be starting his military service in October.
According to a report by YTN Star, Ji Soo plans to fulfill his military duty starting in mid-October. After four weeks of basic military training, Ji Soo will serve as a social service worker.
Ji Soo will be joining an alternative service, a form of national service performed in lieu of military conscription for various reasons, including health issues, conscientious objection, or political reasons. The actor underwent surgery for acute osteomyelitis in 2016.
The report, however, stressed that Ji Soo’s draft card came in December last year, before the current controversy over school violence sparked. Born in 1993, Ji Soo is 29 years old in Korean age.
After the report came out, Keyeast told a media outlet, “We cannot state our position regarding Ji Soo’s enlistment.” Netizens are speculating that the company chose not to talk about the enlistment as it could be read as a sign of the actor avoiding the consequences of his wrongdoings.
