The Korean actor began his military service in March 2019.

Due to a ruptured ligament he sustained in a car accident as a teen, Lee was unfit to enlist as an active-duty soldier and instead served as a public service officer.

All able-bodied South Korean men must serve in the military for about two years before they turn 30 years old.

Lee starred in dramas “Doctor Stranger” (2014), “Pinocchio” (2014-2015), “W” (2016), and “While You Were Sleeping” (2017).

He jumpstarted his career by becoming the youngest runway model at the Seoul Fashion Week in 2005 at the age of 15.

He debuted as an actor in 2010 with the drama “Princess Prosecutor.”
