It's a sad day for Kdrama fans, as we must bid farewell to beloved actor Song Joong Ki. Now 27, it seems the flower-boy actor has decided it's time for him to enlist in the Korean army and serve his country. Song Joong Ki will serve for 21 months in the 102nd Battalion, after training for five weeks.

Before leaving, the actor told his fans, "I'll return healthy and safely. Please don't worry... Thank you so much for coming from far away to see me off."

All the while, he kept his signature grin on his face. Even with his new short hair and no makeup, the star has infinite charm, as seen in the pictures below. We wish Song Joong Ki a fulfilling time in the military and a quick return to dramas!
