Shock! We were having a dinner of homemade mandu guk (dumpling soup) while watching MBC Newsdesk tonight when they reported that actor Hyun Bin might just be joining the Marines in spring.
Hyun Bin is currently seen on the popular weekend drama “Secret Garden” on SBS. We all loved him when he appeared on “My Lovely Kim Sam Soon” and from then on, we never stopped watching him. Not only is he good looking but he’s also a good actor, isn’t he?
I bet this news made some fans quite nervous. Last year, two marines were killed in an attack on an island near North Korea.
Anyway, military service is something that Korean men have to do. And of course, we admire the actors who don’t dodge on their responsibility to serve the country. It’s not easy to enter the ROK Marine Corps but we hope that Hyun Bin gets his wish ;p
