Korean actor Jo Hyun-jae will be discharged from the military on Saturday upon completing South Korea’s two-year mandatory military service.
Jo’s agency Star N Hit Entertainment announced in a press release that on the day of his discharge on June 19, he will hold a short meeting with about 500 fans from Japan, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan in front of his army base.
“Jo wants to thank his fans for supporting him during his military service and he hopes that this meeting with his fans will be a happy and thankful moment,” a representative from his agency said, adding that the actor plans on holding several fan meetings in Asia.
Jo, 30, made his debut in the entertainment business in 2000 with his appearance in the commercial for sports drink Pocari Sweat. He made a household for himself after his roles in SBS’ “Rays of Sunshine” and “Only You.”
He also appeared in several movies including “GP506″ and “Untold Scandal” alongside Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon and critically acclaimed actress Jeon Do-youn.
