Joo Ji-hoon waits for his turn to serve his country
TALK OF THE TOWN
|Fashion model and actor Joo Ji-hoon|
Fashion model and actor Joo Ji-hoon is waiting to find out if he will be called up to complete his mandatory military service. Joo was planning to join the army at the end of the year but his plans may be pushed back due to the increase in the number of young men being conscripted this year.
On a phone call with local media company Newsen, a source familiar with the actor said that Joo may have to wait until early next year.
Meanwhile, Joo’s home page will close on Dec. 1 and membership fees will be refunded, a note on the site said.
Joo got into trouble earlier this year when he was indicted on charges of illegal drug use in April.
In June, he was sentenced to a six-month prison term suspended for one year, community service and fines.
