Singer-actor Im Si-wan will serve as an assistant instructor for new recruits in his military base, local media reported Tuesday.

According to the reports, Im has been chosen as an instructor among trainees who performed well during basic military training, and will take on the role for his 21 months of mandatory military service.
He will be in charge of training and instructing new recruits of the 25th Infantry Division.

Im entered a boot camp in Yangju, just north of Seoul, on July 11 to receive five weeks of basic training.

Im will be discharged on April 10, 2019.

Meanwhile, his MBC drama “The King Loves” will air its last episode today.

Having debuted as a member of a K-pop boy band ZE:A in 2010, the 28-year-old star has appeared in various TV series and films such as “The Moon Embracing the Sun,” “Misaeng (Incomplete Life),”
“The Attorney,” “A Melody to Remember” and “One-Line.” In May, he was invited to an out-of-competition category of this year‘s Cannes Film Festival as co-star of the new crime-action film “The Merciless.”

Im is currently starring on MBC’s drama “The King in Love,” which he finished filming before enlisting.
