Super Junior’s Leeteuk will join the army on October 30.
On September 25, SM Entertainment, Leeteuk’s agency, reported that Leeteuk will enter the 306 military training camp on October 30, receive military training for five weeks, and serve in the army for 21 months.
Debuting as a member of Super Junior in 2005, Leeteuk’s herniated lumbar disc worsened after he got into a big car accident in 2007. However, he had a strong will to join the army, so he has steadily received treatment.
Leeteuk is also popular as the host of SBS TV’s Star King and the regular guest of SBS TV’s Kang Shim Jang. Before he joins the army, he will leave the shows.
Super Junior have recently finished promoting their sixth album, Sexy, Free & Single.
