Career Life & Updates After Military
A press conference was held to welcome the actor after the military. “To be honest, there’s one thing I’m worried about. I’m so used to life in the army that it’s hard for me to talk like a civilian. When I greet people, I find my hand automatically raising into a salute. I feel like it’s going to be hard to stop talking like a soldier, even after I leave. But I still have time before I go, so that will be something I’ll be thinking about till then.” said the actor when asked about his experience in the military.
After he returned from the Military, he announced his appearance in the cast of the SBS variety show ‘Master in the House’. Afterwards, he took part in the leading role of many popular K-dramas like ‘A Korean Odyssey, ‘Vagabond’, ‘Mouse’ and ‘The Law Cafe. ’

Why should all men in South Korea serve in the Military?
Conscription, under the Constitution of South Korea, states that it is mandatory for all male citizens between the ages of 18 and 35 years to serve in the Military. The duration of the service differs according to the military branch they serve. Usually, Active soldiers serve for a period of 18 months, Navy soldiers for 20 months, and Air force soldiers for 21 months.
Male citizens between the above age range go through an ‘Impairment and Disability evaluation’ before enlisting in the “first citizen service” mandate.
The singer Lee Seung-Gi also had to serve as required despite having some breakthrough moments as an artist in the entertainment industry.
