Actor bids farewell to fans before going into the Air Force
Koreans had to watch another handsome young actor go off to mandatory military service this week as Jo In-sung, 28, bid farewell to his fans on Tuesday.
Jo, who will serve for 25 months in the Air Force military band, is said to have been influenced by his father, who also served in the Korean Air Force.
Nearly 500 people crowded South Gyeongsang’s Jinju Air Force Headquarters to wish the actor well, including 200 reporters and 150 fans from Japan.
“I hope I’m not causing too much trouble,” remarked Jo. The actor is known for being polite. “I’m excited and a little worried at the same time. I’ll do my best,” he said, thanking his supporters. By Haejoo Lee
