After repeatedly pushing back the date of his mandatory service enlistment, everyone’s beloved Coffee Prince Gong Yoo finally has an official date marking the start of his service. You can start your tearful countdowns now: He joins on January 14, 2008. More specifically, at 1pm on the 14th, when he begins initial five-week training, after which he’ll enter active duty (20 months).
As a last hurrah before leaving the entertainment world for the next two years, Gong Yoo can celebrate his current nominations for MBC’s year-end acting awards, under the outstanding actor category for Coffee Prince, as well as the most popular male award selected by netizens, and best couple along with co-star Yoon Eun Hye. (Yes, a lot of these are purely vanity handouts “awarded” by networks to keep their shiny stars/moneymakers happy, but I’m sure it must be exciting all the same.) The awards show will take place in Seoul on December 30.
