Jang Hyun-seung, a former member of K-pop boy band Beast, will enlist in the military later this month, his management agency said Thursday.

The 29-year-old original Beast member, who left the group in 2016, will enter military boot camp on July 24 to begin his mandatory 21-month military service, according to Cube Entertainment.

"The exact place of enlistment will not be disclosed as Jang Hyun-seung wants it to be a quiet event," the agency said. Jang will spend five weeks in the boot camp before being assigned to an Army unit.

Jang debuted in 2009 in the original line-up of Beast before leaving the group in April 4 to launch a solo album and perform in the project duo Trouble Maker with Hyuna. In July last year, he released solo single "Home" after renewing his contract with Cube. (Yonhap)
