Lee Hong Ki Posts Farewell Photos With Kim Soo Hyun & Park Shin Hye Before Military Enlistment

Just like Singapore, every able-bodied male in South Korea between 18 to 35 have to serve mandatory military service for 21 months.

We have said our goodbyes and sent many idols including hallyu star Kim Soo Hyun off to serve their nation. This time, it is F.T. Island’s lead singer Lee Hong Ki’s turn to put on the uniform. 😒

In one of his IG posts, Lee said: “I didn’t mean to make a fuss, but since it already became like this, I have to upload the photos!!! Good luck [to us] on the final performance tomorrow!!!!!”

To document his remaining days as a free man until he enlists in the military, Lee took photos with fans who came to bid farewell as well as those who supported him backstage for his musical “I Loved You”.

Besides his fans, Lee also received wonderful support from his bowling buddy and celebrity friend Kim Soo Hyun, both of whom posed in a series of cheeky photos ‘saluting’ each other.
