Korean actor Gang Dong-won [Asia Economic Daily]
Korean actor Gang Dong-won has denied recent rumors that he will be joining the army in November to fulfill his mandatory two-year military service.
An official at Gang's agency talked with Asia Economic Daily over the phone on Saturday, downplaying the media reports as "not true".
"Nothing has been set regarding his military entrance date", said the official, adding that Gang has not even received a draft notice from Korea's Military Manpower Association.
Gang, 29, rose to stardom after appearing in the 2004 film "Temptation of Wolves". He most recently starred in comic fantasy flick "JEON WOO CHI : The Taoist Wizard", which became a local box office hit, and the critically acclaimed film "Secret Reunion" alongside top Korean actor Song Gang-ho.
He is currently shooting a film tentatively titled "Haunters", after which he plans to enter the military.
