Actor Won Reports for Military Service

"Korean Wave" star Won Bin on Tuesday reported for duty at a reserve army unit in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province.

Four hundred of his fans, including 100 from Japan and dozens others from Hong Kong and Taiwan, waited for him at the main gate of the unit to wish him well.

Fan placards had messages such as "Serve well", "Remain healthy in the army" and "We'll wait for you until your return".

The 28-year-old Won will soon take a physical and then assume his assignment at a unit in the province to fulfill his mandatory duty of 24 months.

Debuting in 1996, the baby-faced actor is best known for his role in South Korea's top blockbuster "Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War".

His popularity in Japan began after he starred in the drama "Friends" about a South Korean man who develops a romance with a Japanese woman.
