A quiet enlistment, for once
Actor and hip-hop artist Yang Dong Geun (29) has surprised many with the belated disclosure that he recently began his military service; he enlisted on May 6, but the information wasn’t released till just recently, along with a picture of him in training (to right).
A source explained that he’d wanted to begin his training quietly, and kept it a secret from even his friends; he was only sent off by his mother and manager.
Most recently, Yang Dong Geun starred in the drama series I Am Sam (he’s appeared in numerous films and dramas, such as Ruler of Your Own World and Dr. Kkang, as well as putting out four hip-hop albums). He’d planned for the film I-tal (Secession) to be his last project, but ended up canceling those plans and enlisting instead. He’d received his enrollment papers in January, but had put off service because he was in the midst of film talks. Apparently he’d finally decided enough was enough, and that he would rather get his service over quickly than postponing further to squeeze in more projects.
