이제 복귀. 승진.👍
Return (to base) now. Seungjin.👍
*Seungjin is the name of Wook’s company unit, and is spoken out as a salutation when making a formal salute. Seungjin can also mean “promotion”, which was what we had written originally in the translation.
Note: Soldiers are allowed a short 4-day family leave after 100 days of military service.
“I do not wish to lie to audiences. Pretending to be angry when I’m not, smiling when I’m not enjoying myself… I really do not wish to do that. But that is very difficult.”
Is it his dream to become an actor who does not lie? A rookie actor whom we met at a coffee shop recently revealed a rather unusual acting mindset. But this rookie does not have a role model either. He is none other than Ji Chang Wook who played the role of a reporter with a unique personality in the MBC drama “Hero” that ended last month.

Now this came as a surprise. Ji Chang Wook may be in the army, but we’ll still get to see him on the big screen, albeit for a very short while, in the upcoming Korean movie “The Bros (부라더)”.
His appearances are not ordinary, but his personality is very ordinary. And that’s why he shines even more. Ji Chang Wook enlisted at the Gangwon Province Cheorwon training institute on 14 August. There are many problems concerning celebrities’ army enlistment these days, yet he enlisted coolly for active duty. We met up with him at a restaurant in Yeouido before he enlisted.
