The time is coming to send off yet another super popular Hallyu star to mandatory military service, but it’s not here just yet for Lee Min Ho contrary to latest news reports. K-ent started the week off with news that Lee Min Ho was enlisting in the military this March, a mere two months away and likely not enough time to squeeze in another acting project. His agency has responded to the news report by refuting the March enlistment date, explaining that Lee Min Ho hasn’t received his summons yet so the timing of the enlistment is still up in the air. This is the last year he has to enlist before turning 31 so even if it’s not March it’s still sometime this year. I doubt he’ll do another drama, and leaving on Legend of the Blue Sea isn’t so bad, he acquitted himself well and was one of the better aspects of the drama.
Up next for Lee Min Ho is a special 10th anniversary fan meeting to take place in Seoul in mid-February. If the enlistment isn’t until later in the year and a good movie or drama script comes his way he still has time to leave one final project before doing his national duty.
