Actor Kim Soo-hyun will enlist on Oct. 23, his agency said Thursday.

“Since (Kim) is just fulfilling his duties as a Korean citizen, he wishes to enlist quietly without a fan event or a press conference,” Keyeast Entertainment said in a press release.

All able-bodied Korean men are required to serve in the military for around two years, with some being allowed to serve in non-combat positions.

While he had originally pledged to enlist this year, there has been speculation that his plans may change due to massive commercial and critical failure of Kim‘s recent flick “Real.”

He told local media in June that he wanted one last acting gig after movie before enlisting.
