It's time bid adieu to another handsome star. Ji Chang Wook has already confirmed that he would be enlisting his pending military service after wrapping up his ongoing drama Suspicious Partner. Now, his agency, Glorious Entertainment, revealed that he would begin his active duty on August 14

While fans are already heartbroken to hear his departure, the actor has surprised them with a good news. The K2 star will be holding a special concert as a farewell gift to his fans. Interestingly, the concert will also celebrate 10 years of Ji Chang Wook in the industry.

Titled 'Jiscovery - A Film by Ji Chang Wook,' this will be his 10th concert and will take place on July 22 at 7 pm KST at the Olympic Hall in Seoul. A source from the actor's camp revealed that Wook is planning to meet his fans and give them an unforgettable experience.

Wook has been working non-stop over the years and military would give him the required time to regulate his lifestyle and recharge the energy levels. Earlier this year, the actor stated that he could only get a third class rank for active duty in the physical exam due to his poor vision.

The Healer actor also underwent lasik surgery and to get a first class rank. "Going to the military is a must for any Korean citizen. My friends and people around me enlist, too, so I don't feel regretful or anything," he said in a broadcast interview.

In his ongoing rom-com, Suspicious Partner, Wook plays No Jin Wook, a no-nonsense, clever, and merciless prosecutor with top-claws win rates. While working on a mysterious case, Wook falls for a newbie lawyer Eun Bong Hee (Nam Ji Hyun). Wook has two things to deal with—a traumatic past involving his childhood and first love, and an amnesic killer.
