2006/01/06 Source

Superstar Won Bin has finished his five-week basic military training and volunteered for a unit guarding the iron fence at the border with North Korea. According to Army insiders, the actor volunteered for the assignment on completing his basic training, but confirmation of the assignment will not come until the beginning of next week.

Usually, stars are assigned to the Defense Media Agency, an affiliate of the Defense Ministry, and put in charge of promotional activities or troop entertainment, but Won Bin requested something more challenging. "Won conscientiously took part in military drills and was treated no different to all other servicemen", an Army source said.
