Actor Kim Soo Hyun enlisted in the military on October 23, 2017 and is preparing for his return to the entertainment industry after his official military discharge on July 1, 2019.
According to his agency, KeyEast, Kim Soo Hyun has already signed an exclusive contract as the model for a beauty brand prior to his discharge. He will be the full-fledged model immediately after he gets discharged.
Kim Soo Hyun has been described as a model soldier due to his exemplary work ethic and dedication. He was originally designated as a 4th-class soldier due to a heart condition he had when he was a child, but he requested a re-examination due to his desire to serve in active duty, and was eventually designated 1st-class and enlisted in active duty.
He also showed excellent results in the military, carrying out high-risk missions as part of the 1st division in the Military Demarcation Line and the Southern Limit Line. Only the top 0.1% of soldiers are selected to be part of this division.
Kim Soo Hyun is also currently reviewing numerous drama and movie offers of all types of genres ahead of his military discharge.
