Singer and actor Park Hyung-sik joined to an army boot camp to start his mandatory military service, Monday, United Artists Agency said.
Park, 29, will serve in the Capital Defense Command after completing four weeks of basic army training. His agency said he had been admitted to the capital defense command force, which he applied to join early this year.
It did not disclose details of his enlistment ceremony.
"I wanted to serve the position that I'm interested and good at," Park told Hankook Ilbo last month.
He had experience in military bases from the reality show "Real Man," in which celebrities experience military bases across the nation.
"I was even called 'sniper Park' for my shooting skills at capital defense command force," he said."
Park debuted in 2010 as vocalist in K-pop group ZE:A. He turned to acting when the group disbanded in 2017. His latest movie "Juror 8" opened at theaters last month.
