Pensive Kang Ha Neul for Grazia Magazine on Cusp of Military Enlistment

It’s a little over a month away for actor Kang Ha Neul‘s upcoming military enlistment on September 11, 2017, giving him time to promote his cop caper movie Midnight Runners with costar Park Seo Joon but having him drop out of upcoming drama sequel Bad Guys 2. He’s been such a hard working acting presence since his breakout role in Monstar four years ago and capitalizing on that to cement his acting presence in Misaeng as the second male lead.
