K-Dramaland will have one less actor again as Kim Min Seok announces his upcoming military enlistment.
Actor Kim Min Seok has confirmed news of his enlistment for mandatory military service. According to his agency Respect Entertainment’s statement, Kim Min Seok has set his enlistment date on December 10.

His agency noted that he has already wrapped up filming for his two upcoming films Clowns and Perfect Man (tentative titles). With this, fans may still be able to see him and his acting abilities even after entering the military camp.
Since he has no more acting obligations left after filming for the two movies concluded, Min Seok will spend his time resting as he awaits his enlistment date.
