Oh Snap! Yoo Seung-ho released from army duty

Admittedly, these two photographs aren’t much. On the other hand, if you’re a fan of Yoo Seung-ho (I Miss You, Arang and the Magistrate, Operation Proposal, Warrior Baek Dong-soo, Flames of Ambition, God of Study), awaiting his discharge from military service, maybe they’re everything.

You know your starpower is something else when you voluntarily enlist for army duty at the ripe old age of 20 (rather than pushing the rules to their upper limit of 28) because you’ve risen to such heights that there aren’t really any more leading roles suitable for your age range that you may as well get the obligation over with now. I don’t even know if it’s a good or bad thing that Yoo Seung-ho looks pretty much exactly the same as when he left. Yoo has already lined up his first post-army project with the period fusion movie Joseon Magician… but really, I’m itching to see what drama he picks next. Let’s hope it’s a good one.

MY BABY IS BACK! <3 I feel like such a proud noona with him all done with military service and all. Eagerly awaiting his comeback movie and comeback drama. The sky's the limit for this kid.

He's only 21 and got his military service out of the way already AFTER proving his acting chops/leading man ability, there's going to be no stopping him!

(now counting down to the return of Song Joong-ki, isn't he due out in under six months too?)

Think I saw somewhere that SJK is slated for finishing up around May 26, which would be an awesome birthday present for me as a fan.

....and now there's also a fresh wave of age-appropriate and talented young actresses who'd make great leads with him, I mean I love him but it was kind of absurd seeing him opposite Yoon Eun-hye and Seo Woo** in roles he was too young for. (Park Eun-bin reunion please?!)

**and I do like both these actresses too but sometimes a 19 year old playing a 25 year old just doesn't work.

I think enlisting at such an early (for a celebrity) age was a genius marketing decision. Not only is he a certified noona-killer, he now has major respect from regular Korean men.

yeah, doing military service well is a big deal in Korea and I can understand why.

I don't think celebrities who serve at a later age are thought of poorly as long as they serve, but he and Song Joong-ki did (and SJK is still doing) active duty, and that seems to win major respect points, judging by the reaction to Hyun Bin serving in the Marines.

i think it's because of financial problem. YSH have been acting since child, so, he probably have some savings and his fanbase has been strong. compared to other artist, especially idol, it would be a problem for them to do it early, because their fanbase are not strong enough, and they have to pay all those bills (like trainee bill or something).

Who doesn't love YSH hey?!
On another note, I had to say this somewhere, when's the last time a recap had 500+ comments? We go as far back as YWCFTS methinks, no? I guess Beanies do love Healer, go JCW/PMY!

I am watching it, and I'm too intimidated by the comment count to even read this latest one. I did want to join in and discuss but At the end of 600 comments nobody's going to read mine anyway lol.

Also very excited to see what drama he picks as his first one! Movies are amazing but they're so hard to get a hold of here so....good first drama choice please!

I only posted a thank you for the recap. Whatever thoughts I might have about that episode, I am sure it has already been covered by one of the hundreds of comments in there. lol

I was shocked at the number of comments! I didn't want to peek at the latest recap yet since I haven't started Healer. I must check it out! *-*

Yoo Seung Ho looks the same. Really smart move that he did his army duty sooner than later.

Ep 1-7 has +/- 100 comments, but then ep 8 came and everyone posted once, twice or hundred times. It's already surpassed 1000+ comments. I also wonder why the comments were exploded in the last 2 eps.

The last time there were close to 1000 comments was Master's Sun, it's kind of a rare occurrence :D

(I'm actually wondering whether what happened in episode 8 was THAT noteworthy, because the drama didn't really sound like my thing at all but maybe I should look now)

It's good. I didn't think it'd be my thing either, but I marathoned it last week, and it's really great.

I actually marathoned the drama because of that although I was planning to watch it after it ends but the curiosity was just killing me.

Same here, I'm waiting for Park Ki Woong but it's great to have YSH back.

Yes he is back! I am pleased yet disappointed that he chose a film as his comeback because that means that we have to wait longer to be abke to see it and also that he wont be back on oir screena for a little while longer!
Its funny cos I was going to Paris around the time it was announced that he was going to europe for a photoshoot but since I didnt know where he was going I didnt think much of it. But to thibk we were in the same city at the same time?! I cant believe I missed that....

Super smart for fulfilling his military commitment early. At his age, it was probably easier for his body to endure the rigors of military exercises.

Not that 28 is old, but 8 years more of wear and tear on a body does make a difference. And, that's just normal wear and tear.

Welcome back to him!

The pictures look great. But is that his real hair? He finished military service at the end of November/beginning of December. That would be some really fast-growing hair!

Age appropriate leading ladies:
Park Shin Hye, Jung So Min, Han Groo, Park Eun Bin, Park Se Young, Go Ara, Kang So Ra...
Can't wait to see his next drama too! Hopefully in age-appropriate drama, something like college drama or intern workers ala Misaeng. He was unconvincing playing 25 years old Harry Borrison in IMY because he has baby face. ;)
