Lee Jong Suk will be enlisting in the Korean military on March 8, 2019.

This is just one week after he wraps up his current drama, Romance Is A Bonus Book.

Though this is sooner than expected, we all knew the actor had plans to enlist this year. During a press conference, he revealed, "I think I'll end up enlisting this year. That's why I have to finish this drama well. I wanted to show this to fans. It's my first time trying the romantic comedy genre. I received a lot of help from Lee Na Young so I'm filming well."

In South Korea, the military enlistment law requires male citizens between ages 18 to 28 to perform mandatory service.

When he was 16, Jong Suk tore his ACL during a car accident, which "deemed unfit for service as an active duty soldier." So instead of active duty, he will be working instead as a public service agent.

Jong Suk will be discharged on January 2, 2021. Let the countdown begin! Meanwhile, here are a few photos to brighten up your day:
