According to the press release sent out by Glorious Entertainment earlier today (12 July), Ji Chang Wook has received his formal enlistment notice and will be reporting on 14 August 2017 to begin his military service.
Ji Chang Wook will be enlisting as an active-duty soldier (as compared to a clerical soldier), and begin his basic training at the 3rd Division Army Training Centre in Cheorwon County, Gangwon Province. After completing his basic training, Wook will be officially assigned to a post to fulfill the rest of his 21-month mandatory service with the Infantry Unit, with an anticipated discharge date sometime in late May of 2019.
Through his agency, Ji Chang Wook asks for our support and encouragement so that he can return more mature and at a deeper level after his discharge. Although we knew this day would eventually arrive sooner than later, it still leaves us with heavy hearts. We here at Ji Chang Wook’s Kitchen can only request that Wook stay safe, stay strong, and come back as quickly as possible to our lives… and our small screens. Good luck, Actor Ji! 💕
