[Breaking] Ji Chang Wook to enlist in the military on 14 August 2017

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! 💕

    • Being on any type of social media is not allowed whilst on active duty; recruits and active duty soldiers are not even allowed to have handphones. He may be able to update once or twice while on personal leave, but it will not be as often as before he enlisted.

  7. How can someone handle this ? I can only think that our little prince will be back as a compleat young man !!!! I’ ll pray for him to stay healthy and safe these 2 years !!!!

  8. the date is decided. the day is coming. please come back safe and sound. going to miss you. suspicious partner is endin on Thursday and you going on 14 aug, only 30 days.

    i have been saving Empress ki, warrior baek dong soo for this.

    what does active duty mean? any idea,which force is he going to join?

    • As our post stated, Wook is joining the Army. After he finishes his one month of basic training, he will be stationed at a yet-to-be-named command post where he will further train for combat situations with the Infantry.

      • yeah it is mentioned. i only read the date and mind went blank. sorry should have read first. i was hoping he joins air force, suits him more.
        will this site be updated when he is on leave or when he finishes his training? will we not know anything about him for two years.

      • But if Wook joined the Air Force, he would be away for a longer period of time (24 months as compared to 21 months in the Army). And don’t worry; we have no plans on shutting down while Wook is away serving his country. Stay tuned! 🙂
