Singer-actor Yoon Doo-joon is set to enlist in the military on Friday, Highlight’s agency Around Us Entertainment confirmed.

Yoon took an exam in the hopes of serving as a conscripted police officer, but failed to meet the requirements and was subsequently informed that Friday was his enlistment date. His bandmate Yang Yo-sup passed the exam. 


Yoon posted a handwritten letter to fans through the agency, telling them how surprised he was and that he was very sorry to have to share the news of his enlistment all of a sudden.

Many fans were surprised and expressed concerns about the fate of Yoon’s TV drama “Let’s Eat 3.”

The drama, which airs on the cable channel tvN, is a 16-part series. Representatives of the drama reportedly said it would be cut to 14 and that the final episode would be shot Saturday.
