On August 4th, YG Entertainment stated, “Lee Jong-suk was recently called by the country and he did consider enlisting in the military, but he decided to delay it because he feels responsible for his film and drama as a main actor.”
Lee Jong-suk conveyed his words through the agency: “I am very sorry that my enlistment is late compared to my peers, but I would like to finish my work and faithfully fulfill my obligation of national defense as a Korean man. I will let my fans know first when it is time for my enlistment.”
The agency added, “Please understand with your generous hearts until then.”
Meanwhile, Lee Jong-suk‘s new film ‘VIP’ will premier on August 24 in Korea, and his new drama in September.
