Sungmin, a member of K-pop boy group Super Junior, joined the army Tuesday. He will serve in the military for one year and nine months.

Sungmin is the first idol singer who is married and will be accompanied by his wife -- musical actress Kim Sa-eun -- on his send-off.


“Kim will see her husband off to the army. He will just enter the training camp quietly, accompanied with his family,” a source close to Sungmin told a local media outlet Monday.

Sungmin and Kim were married in December after they first met during the musical “The Three Musketeers,” playing d‘Artagnan and Constance, respectively.

Earlier last week, Shindong, another member of Super Junior, also joined the army.

On the day, many fans and media outlets were waiting to see him off, but he quietly entered the training camp without any special fanfare.
