Seo Kang Joon Readies for Mid-May 2023 Military Service Discharge in One Week

I’m as surprised as K-netizens upon hearing this weekend that K-actor Seo Kang Joon was coming back from completing his military service. Most people legit forgot he was serving and that’s likely due to him having a K-drama last year Grid airing on Disney+ which was filmed prior to his enlistment. He was definitely one of the go-to drama male leads before enlisting and I expect him to come back as a leading man but it’s a zoo out there in terms of how many new actors have been elevated to leading man since he enlisted. I hope he served well and am looking forward to seeing him back on screen.

  1. Me too. So excited. He left when the boom of webtoon to drama adaptations started. Literally a manhwa character walked into real life tbh. Hope he picks a good project next. Nam joo hyuk’s vigilante kinda role would be so perfect for him. Plus hes such a good actor too. Future is limitless

    • Soooo good on watcher. His tortured character alongside Han Seok Kyu and Kim Hyun Joo was a compelling watch. Hope he picks up more mainstream projects though. He has a penchant for indie and gritty roles … it will be nice to see him in a more commercial vehicle for a change

  3. I’m really happy with this news! He went so quietly.

    He really has an interesting filmography with Watcher, When the Weather is Fine, The Third Charm, etc.

  4. He’s one of the few younger actors who can act.

    I remember watching him on SBS’s variety series ROOMMATE in 2014. He was a newbie then. He’s polite, sincere and humble.
