With the start of his mandatory military service around the corner, actor-singer Lee Seung-gi has released a song about the very subject.

His agency, Hook Entertainment, said Lee will enter the Army on Feb. 1, and put out the single "I Am Joining the Military" at noon Thursday.

Through his agency, Lee said the midtempo ballad is as much about himself as about those who will also have to complete their military service, as well as their families and friends.

The 29-year-old, who debuted with the chart-topping single "Because You're My Girl" in 2004, has also dabbled at acting, starring in hit shows like "Brilliant Legacy" and "The King 2 Hearts." He has also been a fixture on variety shows, most notably "Two Days, One Night." (Yonhap)
