While the doomsday clock has started ticking on the late 86 and 87 Korean male stars slated to enlist for their mandatory military service, one silver lining that it’s already 2016 comes in the form of the impending military discharge of Yoon Si Yoon on January 27th. I can’t believe my baby boy has been in the military for almost two years now! He enlisted shortly after finishing Prime Minister and I, he did the best he could in that drama which started off well and ended with a whimper, but it was still a treat to have him onscreen for two months before he shipped off.
Unlike most star enlistees, he was not in the entertainment division or the regular armed forces, Yoon Si Yoon took a cue from sunbae Hyun Bin and enlisted in the hardcore marines. That likely is the reason why he really dropped off the radar after enlisting without even the occasional update. I can’t wait to have him back and diving into dramas if the right role is available. This Tenasia spread was one of the last pictorials he did back in spring of 2014 prior to enlisting so I’ll stare at it some more while wondering what Yoon Si Yoon will look like after two years in the marine corps.
I love YSY so much and so happy he’ll hopefully be back to Kdrama land soon. Only the highest respect for him when he decided to join the Marines instead of some “entertainment” division. My dad was an ROK marine and I remember him telling me it was pretty hard, but he was always very proud he got through it.
YESH YSY!! I love him. My fav drama of him is Bread, Love, and Dream! Come back to dramaland ahh~~~!
I was just thinking on the other day whatever happened to him. I totally forgot that he’s in the marine. I sure do miss him. I hope his comeback drama will be a big hit. 🙂
Enrique will be back! Missing him so much.
He went into the Marines?! His face is so angelic. Good for him.
I’ve been counting down to his discharge!! I, too, can’t wait for him to come back to dramaland!!
I was just wondering about him this past week! Thanks for the update! 🙂
yeah, marines is the hardest division as far as I know, so I respect yoon shi yoon and hyun bin
Awesome! Time really flies. I cannot believe he’ll be back so soon. He is one of my favorite actors and I will watch him anything. Can’t wait to see what the Marines have done to him. He was already the best mix of boyish charm and super sexy around. Love him!
Mad respect to him for joining the marine.he worked hard to overcome his fear of water.to think that before he joined barefoot friend he can’t even swim
My baby is back! I missed him so much! 😀 Can’t wait to see him again either on the big or small screen.
