The news with respect to K-actor Kim Bum has been so unexpectedly lately. First was his dating confirmation with actress Oh Yeon Seo a few weeks ago, and now comes news that he’s enlisting at the end of April to complete his mandatory service in the public services bureau. He was exempt from active duty due to not passing his physical exam for a hereditary disease according to his agency. He’ll still have to serve but just a desk job. With news of a Hana Yori Dango dorama sequel in Japan and China/Taiwan jointly producing a modern 2018 adaptation with Meteor Garden, it’s sad to see that Boys Before Flowers may have been the biggest hit the year it aired in terms of buzz along with sky high ratings, but sadly the entire cast other than Lee Min Ho has faltered in their entertainment careers. Kim Bum I still have hopes for that maybe he can one day achieve once he’s back from the military in 2020.
