Nam Joo-hyuk, a popular actor in South Korea, is getting ready to report for his required military duty in the month of December.
On Monday, October 17, the actor’s management company, Management SOOP, issued a statement confirming the news. According to a source from Soompi, the record label stated that “even if he does have to [enlist] in December, the precise date has not been established since he has yet to be sent a draft notice.” This is the reason why the exact date has not been fixed.
