Lee Seung Gi will enlist in the 2nd half of next year… Possibility of serving as common soldier ↑

This is a really long article, and I don’t really have time to translate it right now. But very briefly, this article is mostly speculation. SeungGi’s enlistment date is NOT confirmed. It’s also rumored that SeungGi wants to serve as a common soldier, not an entertainment soldier.

    ㅠㅠ eventhough i know it will come sooner or later, and i prefer it will be sooner..but i still feel sad to hear that ㅠㅠ
    anyway, based on his personality, its possible that he want to be common soldier… I will support him till the end

    What’s the difference between the both ? Is it tougher to be a common soldier ?

      Common soldier is definitely tougher. Entertainment soldier means that he’ll be on the military unit that provides entertainment for the troops after basic military training. So physically less taxing. Common soldier means that he go thru the vigors of a normal combat fit soldier.

      • Jennifer says:

        Seung Gi has the best of both worlds. If he decides to be a common soldier, he’s tough enough to do it. 5 years of 1N2D gave him the training for that. If he decides to be an entertainment soldier, he just a natural at it. I think he will do well in the army when the time comes for him to enlist. I’m not so sure of us, fans, though…..:'( 😥 😥

    I have always been giving Tryp’s work thumb-ups but I for once seriously don’t know how I should rate this news…

    I don’t know if its good or bad news but anyway it will be good for him at least he got to be a regular citizen without so much schedule here and there only concentrating on his military duties.
    @diahakseng i agreea…i prefer for him to go sooner also….since he is already a established actor there’s no doubt he’ll have no problem returning as an actor after finishing his service.
    its just that for sure fans will cry a river for his enlistment….whew….

  5. SLTeh says:

    eventhough I read it with teary-eye, I agreed with above comment prefer for him to go sooner…
    Seunggi-yah! we will always support you in whatever you wish for… & will wait for your returning..
    We LOVE You!!!

    Although I know will be the only early or late, but I do feel lost something in my heart when you hear that, at that time will not be heard or seen the news about Seunggi in 2years? Only think that I wanted to cry… BUT SEUNGGI ya…..FIGHTING! We ‘ll still love you forever, Seunggi yaaa………

  7. lycrazy4lsg says:

    That’s our forever humble prince, to be a common soldier! Though I will miss him very badly for the 2 years too, but time flies like nobody’s business. Very soon we will be able to see him and support him again. Airens and Seung Gi ya…. HWAITING!!!

  8. dalsg says:

    We know this will come… Sometime,i just want him to postpone his army duty,but it means, I must waiting longer too he completed the service..SeungGi ya~ just go when u feel very steady.. Our love & support for you its like Unfinished Story :’)

  9. Anonymous says:

    Yeah the sooner the better,so it won’t be too hard for all of us to wait for him. It is harder to anticipate when will he enlist than to wait for him to come home from the army. I think the reason he wants to be a common soldier is because he wanted to feel what a real soldier is all about. as far as I heard,entertainers have a special rank when they enter the army. Am I right?

  10. judepps says:

    I want to convince myself that 2 years is no BIG deal yet, whenever i think of it i couldn’t help but feel some emptiness after reading this article.. what more when the time of his enlistment come?? Aww! I can’t imagine Airens w/o Seunggi in our TV screens even for a month..yet no doubt whatever decision He will make Airens will always support you & stand by you..*teary-eyed*
    hope i can go to his concert before his enlistment.. i hope Hook will announce it sooner.

    I DON’T THINK IT IS TRUE BECOZ IN RECENT INTERVIEW POST TK2H SEUNGGI STATED HE WOULD LIKE TO BE IN TWO MORE PIECES OF WORK(AS AN ACTOR) BEFORE HE LEAVES FOR MILITARY DUTY.SO I DON’T THINK THINK HE WILL DO TWO MORE DRAMA PIECES IN ONE YEAR SO I THINK IT WILL BE NOT BEFORE 2O14, MAY BE LATER PART OF 2014 OR FURTHER MORE .SO WE NEEDN’T WORRY NOW AND WATCH SEUNGGI ON TV UP TO 2014 MID.. FOR SURE UNLESS HE CHANGES HIS MIND BUT DON’T THINK SO THAT WILL HAPPEN.PLZ SEUNGGI HEARING THIS NEWS I WANT TO SEE YOU ON TV BADLY.PLZ MAKE A COMEBACK SOON AS A MULTIENTRTAINER KOREA LONGS FOR.SEUNGGI FIGHTING!

  13. Jennifer says:

    Yup, I love his hairstyle in that pic. To me that’s his best style and he looks simply handsome with it.

    i think oppa wants to enlist early if this article say the truth he is only 25 and next year 26,27 in korea so if he enlist next year he will finish his duty before he is 30…oppa is really the best entertainers and idols at his age who are on top of their career will hesitate to enlist they will prefer to enlist when they are in there 30’s or 30 something,and also he don’t want to be treated differently so he want to be a common soldier…me too even i always like what tryp write in her blog but this time i don’t know how to react but anyway we are his fans and what ever he decides we need to support him even though it means not to see him for 2 years,at least he thinks of his duty for his country cause some people evade to enlist maybe because they will miss their family,friends and their daily life at least oppa even if he is really famous and on top of his career now he doesn’t hesitate to think for his futur enlistment..anyway whatever he decides we can only support him and wait for his return more manly and mature :)) ..OPPA FIGHTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀

    Maybe i am the selfish one here,but i can’t bear not seeing seunggi for 2 year. I really hope he will do variety program before his enlistment. I have been watching 1n2d from the beginning again because i miss not seeing him on the news. Please leave us your fans with more dramas, albums and variety show before you enlist seunggi yaaa. This morning, I think i dropped my heart somewhere when i read the title of this news, i feel empty and want to cry ㅠ ㅠ. My poor heart ㅠㅠ

    • Anonymous says:

      So agree with you I am still in shock! Please let tnis not be true! I cant imagine my world without my Korean prince, I so sad, so sad I will start praying extra for his safe return and service to his country. I am so so proud of him. always in my mind and in heart sweet Lee Seung Gi”King of hearts”Prince of Korea”

    • maritess says:

      can i ask do you watch 1n2d with subs if it’s the case can i ask u where do u watch??cause i can’t find all the episodes now

    Since military services are obligatory in Korea, I personally preferred LSG to go soon. No doubt that we will miss him for 2 years but it is better to get military service off his shoulders. Then, once that is out of the way, he can concentrate of other endeavors.

    • Jennifer says:

      Agree ! Hopefully getting married is one of the endeavours :). I think he will make a great husband and father 🙂 🙂

    Whew. We have been dealing with this issue for a very long time now. And our agony about this matter is just too much to bear right?Well, as for me, I also agree with the rest and this has been my stand too.. That it would be better if he will enlist soon. It’s their obligation, and as an artist, it’s best to finish it sooner so he can concentrate on being as an artist full time. We’d definitely cry thousands of rivers, but that’s life. We just have to bear the fact that we’ll miss him for 2 years. I think to be on a variety before he serve the army might not be an option. Because he would feel burdened by the fact that he has to leave the show for the army. I guess he would feel guilty if that happens.
    Seung Gi being a common soldier.. I applaud him on that. It means that he’s not into special treatment just because he’s a famous artist. It’s so Seung Gi. We all know how much he works his best in all he does. So I guess he wanted to serve his country that well.
    Seung Gi-yaa.. We’ll definitely miss you. But regardless of our soon to be heart breaking experience once you’ll enlist..we’d still support you. Just come back really soon! A drama for us to keep before you enlist would be very much appreciated. We love you!

    Sorry to say this but if the time comes for his MS it will the saddest day for all Airens,not seeing LSG for a day,minutes,seconds is an agony what more for 2years, its totally unbearable,what can we do its compulsory for all Korean men ….for now i dont want to think about his enlistment.its really early to think about that,lets just enjoy the present time with LSG

    people of korea must be missing SeungGi a lot. i mean why all of a sudden they come up with the issue of him enlisting next year? yes he said he made up his mind about his military duty but he didn’t say when exactly. Well i feel the same way. i miss SeungGi a lot too! i wish to see him more on TV.
