South Korean actor Nam Joo Hyuk has become the latest celebrity to enlist in the military. The actor, who was shooting the Disney+ series Vigilante, wrapped the series before his private enlistment on March 20, 2023. Nam is born in 1994 and was supposed to enlist by the end of 2022. However, he was given the date for March 2023.

As per the reports, the actor will begin his military service as a member of the military police task force on Monday. He will be receiving basic training for five weeks. After the completion of his mandatory training at the comprehensive administrative school, he will be assigned to his own battalion.

Under the current law, all able-bodied Korean men are obliged to serve in the military. But with the culture minister’s recommendation, international award-winning athletes and classical musicians can complete their service while remaining active professionally. They are called alternative service for 34 months. Three lawmakers proposed bills earlier in 2021 calling for those exemptions to apply to a wider range of artists.

On the work front, Nam Joo Hyuk has wrapped shooting for Vigilante. The Disney+ series will arrive later this year. Back in 2022, he was seen in the hit series Twenty-Five, Twenty-One with Kim Tae Ri. The series is about a professional fencer who plans are foiled by a sudden financial crisis in the 1990s, and the passionate young high-school student wonders if it’s time to give up on her dreams. But the hardworking part-timer at the comic book shop may be the kindred soul she needs to keep her spirits up—especially when they meet again at ages 25 and 21.

The actor was last seen in the film Remember which was released in theatres in South Korea on October 26.
