SEOUL, Oct. 23 (Yonhap) — Actor Kim Soo-hyun started his mandatory military duty Monday, his agency has said.

Keyeast Co. said Kim, 29, entered a military training camp in Paju, Gyeonggi Province, and there was no event for fans, as the actor didn’t want to make a fuss about starting his duty.

“I would like to say goodbye, albeit quickly, before going to the military. I want to say thank you all for supporting me. I will be back soon and hope everyone takes good care of themselves,” the actor wrote on his Instagram Monday.

He will be discharged on July 22, 2019.

He was classified as unfit for active military duty by the Military Manpower Administration on his first health check at age 20 due to his poor heart condition. But this has improved enough that he has recently been determined able to start his military service, according to the agency. Without such improvement, he would instead have engaged in a substitute service such as working in a ward office.

The actor made his debut in 2007 in MBC’s “Kimchi Cheese Smile” and rose to stardom through the popular TV series “Moon Embracing the Sun” and “My Love from the Star.”

All able-bodied South Korean men must serve in the military for approximately two years.
