Hyun Bin Qualifies as Top Marksman at Boot Camp

2011/04/08 | 1242 views | Permalink | Source

Heartthrob Hyun Bin has been named a top marksman in shooting training at the Marine boot camp in Pohang. The actor has been in boot camp for five weeks since he enlisted in the Marine Corps on March 7.

Democratic Party lawmaker Shin Hak-yong, a retired marine officer himself, was told by the Marine Corps, Hyun scored a full 20 marks in night and day individual firearms training from March 28 until April 2.

Out of about 720 rookie Marines, 16 including Hyun qualified as top marksmen. Hyun hit the target 19 times out of 20 in day shooting training, and all of his 10 shots hit the target at night, a Marine Corps spokesman said. To qualify as a top marksman, rookies must hit the target more than 18 times out of 20 in day training and nine out of 10 at night.

Hyun will finally receive the scarlet insignia, the marines' battle colors, on April 15 after undergoing extreme endurance training in the last week of boot camp, when rookies march scores of kilometers in full gear and bivouac in open terrain, while reducing meals and sleep to a minimum.

Rookies will be assigned to units in Pohang, Gimpo, Baeknyeong or Yeonpyeong islands in an open computer-aided draw this Friday.
