Kim Ji-suk heads off for military service
He was sent off by members of the press and a small crowd of fans. Asked whether he plans to apply for the entertainers’ unit following basic training, he answered that he’s not thinking of it at this time. For now, he will train for five weeks and then serve 22 months in active duty. His discharge is planned for March 7, 2012.
I hadn’t really cared much for Kim Ji-suk until this year, when he took on roles in Chuno and then Personal Taste, the latter of which really endeared me to him. It’s too bad that most actors end up leaving just as they’re hitting their peak, but the sooner they go, the sooner they’re back, right?
The day before, Kim Ji-suk uploaded the photos below onto his mini-homepage, showing his newly shorn hair. (Personally, I think he wears it quite well, which isn’t always the case for actors. He actually reminds me of Jo Hyun-jae in these pictures.)
