South Korean actor Jang Ki-yong is preparing to enlist for his mandatory military service duties this August, his agency YG Entertainment confirmed.

“Actor Jang Ki-yong will enlist as an active duty soldier on [Aug. 23] after concluding filming for his drama Now, We Are Breaking Up," YG Entertainment announced through a statement to Starnews Korea via Soompi on July 26.

It added that they will not disclose the time and location of Jang's enlistment to prevent the spread of Covid-19 among the actor’s fans.

“This was an inevitable decision made for the safety of fans and reporters, so we ask for your understanding,” the agency stated. “Please show support for Jang Ki-yong as he diligently completes his mandatory service and returns in good health.”

Jang recently starred opposite actress Hyeri in the romantic comedy series My Roommate Is A Gumiho. He is currently filming the upcoming Korean drama Now, We Are Breaking Up with actress Song Hye-kyo. – Philippine Daily Inquirer/Asia News Network
