His management firm S.M. Entertainment said on Tuesday. Ryeowook, whose real name is Kim Ryeowook, has put off his enlistment date in the South Korean army. Latest reports claimed that the 28-year-old actor-singer has postponed his plans to fulfill the two-year mandatory military service as an active duty soldier.
Shortly before entering the boot camp, he talked with some 200 fans for around 20 minutes.
With closely cropped hair, the singer, in a black jacket and jeans, greeted and thanked his fans who came from as far as China and Japan.
Lee Teuk, Super Junior’s leader, kept him company. Among the 11 members, four have already finished their duty, while five are in the middle of the military service.
Aside from the group activities, Ryeowook released a solo album in January and has been actively promoting it. He’s also worked as a radio DJ.
