Korean actor Lee Joon-gi will be pushing back his military entrance date to fulfill his current work commitments, according to his agency JG Company on Monday.
According to an official at JG, Lee had received a notice from Korea's Military Manpower Administration to enter the army within the year to fulfill his mandatory two-year service.
"But he asked to defer the entrance date because he is currently working on a movie and television series", the official was quoted as saying. "Entering the military is something that should be and will be done without question, but I think he needs to finish what he has been working on before going [to the military]".
He added that final details regarding the issue will be sorted out sometime early next week.
Lee, 27, became a household name after appearing as a woman-like clown in the 2005 hit film "The King and the Clown" and most recently portrayed a passionate magazine reporter in MBC TV series "Hero - Drama".
