South Korean actor and K-Pop idol Park Hyung-sik has officially finished his responsibilities as an active-duty soldier —less than two years since enlisting in the mandatory military service.
According to a News1 Korea report, Hyung-sik was supposed to return to his base after completing his duties, but COVID-19 protocols no longer required him to do so.
Although nothing has been finalized yet, it seems fans may see the Korean star return to the screen anytime soon as he has been getting offers to star in either television or film projects following his discharge, his agency said.
Park Hyung-sik entered military service in June 2019, starting his basic military training at the Nonsan Army Recruit Training Center and eventually served as an active-duty soldier at the Capital Defense Command soon after.
Hyung-sik dabbles between singing and acting as he is known for being part of the South Korean boy group called ZE:A and has appeared in numerous films and TV shows over the past decade.
Apart from Park Hyung-sik, ZE:A is currently composed of members Kevin, Hwang Kwang-hee, Im Si-wan, Lee Hoo, Kim Tae-heon, Jung Hee-chul, Ha Min-woo, and Kim Dong-jun.
He has done supporting roles for shows like The Heirs and lead roles in dramas such as Strong Girl Bong-soon.
In 2016, he took on a major role in the hit period drama Hwarang which aired on ABS-CBN back in 2017.
Hyung-sik’s last drama was the Korean remake of the hit legal drama Suits where he played the role of Go Yeon-woo.
Before he entered the military, he starred in the film Juror 8, taking on the role of Kwon Nam-woo.
He came to Manila in 2019 for a fan meeting.
