Kim Soo Hyun will reportedly enlist in the military in September. A source close to the 29-year-old South Korean actor revealed that his representative has told advertisers that he would have to complete all his scheduled activities by the end of August.
According to Soompi, the insider shared: "While he has not received a notice of enlistment yet, based on his current schedule, it seems safe to expect a September enlistment."
However, Hyun's agency, KeyEast Entertainment, has denied the reports. The label said: "Kim Soo Hyun has yet to receive a notice of enlistment. Therefore, it is not possible to ascertain the timing of his enlistment."
Meanwhile, Hyun was praised for his performance the R-rated movie Real, which released on 28 June. In the film, he was seen opposite former girl group f(x) member Sulli.
During an interview with Korea JoongAng Daily, he was asked how did his sex scene with Sulli go. He replied: "I met her for the first time while making this movie. I didn't know what kind of voice she has or how she acts. Then I met her and she is very passionate. She was easy to talk to and work with as she is a type of person who asks things that she's curious about on the spot."
He added: "To film the most intimidating scene, we both put a lot of effort into controlling what we eat. When the day of filming came, we both were putting lots of energy onto our abdominal muscles [to look better] so we couldn't breathe well or read the lines loudly."
