South Korean superstar Lee Min-ho set to return after military service, fans can't contain their excitement
South Korean superstar Lee Min-ho, who is currently serving as a public service officer as part of his mandatory military training in Gangnam District, will be discharged on April 25. MYM Entertainment, the agency that is home to the actor and singer, stated that "he'll be quietly ending his service with no special event."
Min-ho, famous for his roles in 'City Hunter', 'The Heirs' and 'Legend of the Blue Sea', injured his thigh in a car accident in 2006, following which he had to serve as a public service worker.
Min-ho started his military service as a public service worker (gong-ik) in May 2017. He then entered the Korea Army Training Center in Nonsan, South Chungcheong Province on March 15, 2018. The actor completed his four-week basic training on April 12, 2018.
After those four weeks, he returned to his workplace again as a public service worker at Suseo Social Welfare Center in Gangnam, Seoul.
Min-ho first became famous in South Korea and other parts of Asian after his lead role as Gu Jun-Pyo in Korean drama 'Boys Over Flowers' in 2009.
With the 31-year-old actor's discharge date coming closer, fans are super excited and preparing for his comeback.
While some say that he would rest after the discharge on Thursday, others are confident that the K-drama star would be going back to work.
There are also reports saying that the actor is likely to join Park Shin Hye for another installment of 'The Heirs'. The 2013 show's plot revolves around a group of rich teens who are about to take over their families' business empires.
But Shin Hye has dismissed all rumors of the show getting another installation anytime soon. Although this has left fans disappointed, Min-ho is also rumored to reunite with Jun Ji Hyun for 'The Legend of the Blue Sea 2' -- a Korean drama series spun around the fantasy romance between rich kid Heo Joon Jae (Min-ho) and a mermaid called Shim Cheong (Jun Ji Hyun). The television series was a big hit in 2017 and has got high ratings.
