Actor Choi Jin Hyuk recently suffered a knee injury during military drills, forcing him to undergo surgery last week. He is still currently hospitalized and receiving treatment for his injury.

Choi Jin Hyuk's agency Red Brick House released the following statement regarding the incident: 

“Choi Jin Hyuk suffered a knee injury during training. He went to the hospital to get his knee treated. However, he was told that he needed surgery, so he received surgery last week. He is currently receiving treatment at a hospital.”

Unfortunately, Choi Jin Hyuk has had previous issues with his knee. “Even before entering the military, his knee was not in good condition. It is regrettable to share news of his injury when he had been participating in military life in a positive fashion. We hope he will recover and return to his military service soon.”

Choi Jin Hyuk recently began his military service on March 31, 2015 and is expected to be discharged on December 30, 2016. 

Hopefully Choi Jin Hyuk will make a speedy recovery!
