After a few possible enlistment dates bandied about in the past year, it’s finally time to say auf wiedersehen to actor Lee Jong Seok who is confirmed to head to the military next week on March 8th. He’s leaving on a solid career note with the well-received tvN rom-com Romance is a Bonus Book, and having the chance to work with his dream costar Lee Na Young. Lee Jong Seok is enlisting towards the tail end of the enlistment period but he hasn’t wasted delaying his service, having plowed through successive popular dramas starting from Pinocchio to W: Two Worlds then While You You Sleeping and now Bonus Book. He’s in the cover and pages of the March edition of 1st Look magazine in a pictorial title United Colors of Romance as he wears the preppy and colorful outfits with confidence and ease. I’m not going to miss him as much while he’s gone since my Lee Jong Seok craze has mellowed out but he’s definitely got to recharge and ready himself for two years later to come back and take his career to another level.
