Super Junior artist Ryeowook is all set to take up his mandatory military enlistment. The 28-year-old, who was scheduled to join his conscription from 14 June, will be enrolling on Tuesday.
According to SM Entertainment, the South Korean singer will get recruited at training center located in Jeungpyeong County, North Chungcheong Province, on 11 October. It is stated that the Super Junior artist will undergo basic military training for five weeks before moving to serve as an active-duty soldier for 21 months.
Ryeowook is the second-last from his 13-member group to get enlisted in the army. Apparently, singer-actor Cho Kyu-hyun, who joined the clan in 2006, is the only one left who has not enrolled himself into the mandatory services.
Ryeowook, whose real name is Kim Ryeowook, was scheduled to join the services in June. However, the singer skipped the deadline to serve his overseas fan meet schedule. The press note by The Little Prince singer's agency read: "After completing his Super Junior overseas schedules, Ryeowook is hoping to enlist right away. He plans on enlisting as an active-duty soldier as soon as the enlistment date is confirmed and will faithfully fulfill his military duty."
Ryeowook, who became one of the first Korean artistes, to appear on Chinese postage stamps, announced his military enlistment in March 2016.
