Korean actor Hyun Bin [Asia Economic Daily]
Actor Hyun Bin may enter the Korean military in early November, according to a sports newspaper on Thursday.
Local sports daily IS Plus reported that the actor will be entering Nonsan military camp in South Chungcheong Province on November 1 to start receiving five weeks of basic training as part of fulfilling his two-year mandatory military duties.
However, Hyun Bin's agency AM Entertainment downplayed the report, explaining "Nothing has been set as of yet. He hasn't gotten a draft notice yet, so it's difficult to say whether he will be entering the military on November 1".
The official added that the actor is looking into a follow-up role and that he hopes he will get to appear in one more production before he enters the military.
