Korean actor and leader of K-pop group Highlight Yoon Doo-joon is slated for military enlistment tomorrow, Aug. 24, his agency Around Us Entertainment confirmed.

The news arrived when Yoon was informed that he had failed to meet the requirements to serve as a conscripted police officer. His bandmate, Yang Yo-seob, however, passed the police exam and is reported to be enlisting for his military duties in a few months.


Yoon addressed his fans in a handwritten letter which was posted by his agency. He apologized to his fans about the sudden news and he expressed that he too was surprised when he received his letter for enlistment.

While fans were surprised, many have also expressed their concern about Yoon’s drama entitled “Let’s Eat 3”.


Reports from representatives of the drama said that the series will be cut to 14 episodes from the original 16-episode format. JB
