Lee Jong Suk was supposed to join the army on August 10. The Doctor Stranger actor delayed enlistment for a number of reasons, which are detailed below!

According to agency YG Entertainment, Lee Jong Suk “received a military recruitment letter but postponed enlistment because of the dramas and films he'd already signed up for.”

Lee says he feels "sorry that I’m enlisting later than my peers, but I plan to serve the country like all Korean men do after finishing up the work,” adding he will will let the fans know before leaving for the army.

Prior to this Aug. 4 update through YG Entertainment, Lee was reportedly delaying enlistment to pursue a master’s degree in acting from Konkuk University.

When Lee enlists, he’ll serve as a social worker because of a previous knee injury.

While we’re unsure when Lee will enlist, Sweet Stranger and Me's Lee Soo Hyuk is enlisting this week, and Love in Trouble’s Ji Chang Wook is enlisting Aug. 14.
