Singer and Actors To Receive Army Chief of Staff Award

Singers Psy, Sung Si-kyung, Kangta and actor Yang Dong-geun will receive the Army Chief of Staff Award for their dedication during military service, according to the Republic of Korea Army Tuesday.

Psy, 31, and Sung, 30, were recognized for their participation in various military events, including music performances and also for lifting fellow soldiers' spirits. Kangta, Yang, Hong Dong-myung and Lee Hyun-gyun were given the honors for appearing in the military musical "MINE" and promoting the army.

The Army added that specific details such as the date and location have not been confirmed.

The award is especially meaningful for Psy, a popular rap singer, who returned to the military after serving two years from 2003 to 2005. The singer had been accused of neglecting his duties, and was called up for the military again last year. He will be discharged on Saturday.

Sung, who also entered the military last year, is famous for his delicate voice and sweet ballads, such as "Can We Start Again" and "In the Street", while Kangta, 30, former member of the now disbanded group H.O.T. and now a solo singer, also joined the army the same year, leaving behind hoards of fans from Korea, Japan and even China.

Yang Dong-geun, 30 ― who, somewhat quietly, joined the army in 2008 ― is another popular actor and appeared in the dramas "I Am Sam" (2007) and "Ruler of Your Own World" (2002). He is also a singer and has released four albums.
