By Lee Hyo-won

Pop star Rain will begin his mandatory two-year military service on Oct. 11.

The singer-actor, whose real name is Jung Ji-hoon, will begin his stint as an active-duty soldier at the Uijeongbu 306 Reserve Battalion.

"I will enlist in the army next month", the 29-year-old wrote on his official website Friday. "It's been almost 10 years since I made my debut and I was able to do so many things thanks to my fans' love and support. I truly appreciate having tried to do my best and having experienced many honorable moments".

He went on to say that his entry into the military came rather late. "I'm a little embarrassed that I'm beginning the service rather late. I will try even harder to make up for the tardiness".

Ahead of his enlistment Rain will hold concerts at Seoul Olympic Park on Saturday and Sunday as part of his cross-country tour "The Best Show".

As an honorary ambassador for Gangnam-gu Office, he will hold an outdoor street performance next to the CGV Theater in Apgujeong-dong on Oct. 9.
