Actor Jo Han-seon will enter the army next month as part of fulfilling the country's two-year mandatory military service.
Starting September 9, the 29-year-old actor is expected to undergo four weeks of basic training at Nonsan training camp in South Chungcheong Province and then work as a public service worker for his remaining period of service.
Jo had been set to join the military early this year but pushed back the date following his marriage in January to his girlfriend of two years who was also already pregnant. His wife gave birth to a baby girl in late April.
Jo, who rose to stardom through debut sitcom Nonstop 3 in 2002, has appeared in several dramas and movies.
He wrapped up filming of movie "A Better Tomorrow", a Korean remake of the Hong Kong classic "A Better Tomorrow, 1986", also starring actors Song Seung-heon, Joo Jin-mo and Kim Kang-woo.
