While I’ve posted recently about upcoming discharges such as Im Joo Hwan and Kim Jae Wook, not to mention Rain is making news for managing to get himself a girlfriend in popular actress Kim Tae Hee while he is still in the army (what can I say, guy’s got game), there are quite a few entertainers serving their duty in a low key way that aligns with their day job. One specific guy I’m talking about is none other than Ji Hyun Woo, who enlisted in last Summer among quite the media fervor having just wrapped a mania drama in Queen In Hyun’s Man with Yoo In Na, and more importantly, carrying on a very public romance with her in front of the world to see. He managed to enlist on a high note with Yoo In Na publicly stating that she’s waiting for her man to come back. It’s actually not like he got shipped off to Siberia, armed service members get days off and furloughs and if they are in the entertainment division, they actually hang around Seoul quite a lot performing. This past January saw Ji Hyun Woo headlining a military-produced musical that ran for two weeks in Seoul called The Promise. Judging from the stills, I’m going to guess the promise entails a band of military brothers promising to make it home alive from the war. There are a few stage-trained musical actors in Korean entertainment (Kang Ji Hwan, Oh Man Seok, Jo Jung Seok, Eom Ki Joon), and Ji Hyun Woo is a member of that small but elite group of men who belt on Grease on stage and then turn on a dime and delivery a melodrama worthy performance in front of the TVs. For him to headline this musical is a no-brainer, and apparently currently serving Super Junior member Leeteuk was also in the cast. Sorry that I have no clue who he is, the only three SuJu members I know and like are Heechul, Choi Siwon, and Donghae. I actually liked Ji Hyun Woo way before QIHM and it was nice seeing him get some mania popularity, though he’s been a drama leading man for years already. He looks great with the crew cut and I’m sure he rocked this performance easily. He’s got another year left to service so enjoy this glimpse of him before he’s squirreled away by the military.
