Last month, K-pop star turned actor Im Si Wan attended his first Cannes Film Festival. This week, the ZE:A member and actor confirmed his enlistment date as July 11.

“I have to leave you for awhile to serve the country,” Im said through his agency Plum Entertainment. “I feel sad but also great because I feel like I'm finally doing the homework I've been putting off until now. I'm looking forward to my future self who would experience new things and grow.”

Im will join the army base in Yangju, Gyeonggi Province, on July 11 at 2 p.m.

The actor has a long filmography which includes The Moon that Embraces the Sun, Incomplete Life (Misaeng), and The Attorney. Last month he attended Cannes for his performance in The Merciless.

Best of luck in the army, Im Si Wan!
