We’ve noticed a lot of current stars heading off to fulfill their mandatory military duty, but how about the guys already there?
Gong Yoo (of Coffee Prince, not that you needed the reminder) enlisted back in January, and is taking a new role as a radio DJ for the Korean Forces Network (KFN) (aka the broadcast station run by the national army).
Starting on November 3, Gong Yoo will be broadcasting every day in the two-hour program “Gong Yoo’s Awaited 20:00” (the 20:00 referring, of course, to his airtime of 8 p.m.)
He said, “I’m really happy to be acting as radio DJ for the Korean Forces Network, and I’m thrilled to be able to meet my fans through the radio. I’ll treat this as a special duty I’ve been entrusted with, and do my utmost to make my program the most fun, popular show.”
The program will mostly be talk radio format where current events and other items of interest will be discussed. (There is a high probability that the recent enlistee Sung Shi-kyung, who already has radio DJ experience in his real-life career, may also act as a DJ for KFN. Former participants include Yoon Kye-sang, who was enlisted from December 2004 through December 2006.)
