It's no secret that Ji Chang Wook is a favorite around here so of course I had to acknowledge the news of his formal enlistment for his mandatory military service in the South Korean army. Chang Wook had announced that this would be happening during the run of his last drama Suspicious Partner and has been making preparations since the show wrapped. In between a farewell tour with appearances on various programs, the 30 year old actor had also been getting his affairs in order and spending as much time as possible with his mother and friends.

In addition to this super adorable photo with his mom that he posted on his Instagram, Chang Wook also detailed the process of his military buzz cut in a video. I've always maintained that he has one of the most glorious heads of hair in show business but he also looks pretty amazing with a shaved head. It's not a look everyone can rock but his chiseled good looks and symmetrical head shape make it work.

Chang Wook is going out on a high note as news just came out that he ranked 3rd in Korea's male advertising brand model brand reputation index just behind Song Joong Ki and Gong Yoo for the past month. He reported for basic training at the 3rd Infantry Division army base in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province on August 14th.  It was supposed to be a quiet occasion but the press and his fans showed up to give him a warm sendoff. Here's wishing him a safe and  peaceful service. I look forward to his new projects when he completes his enlistment in 21 months. And no this will most definitely not be the last of Chang Wook's appearances on here.

  4. Ooh, the short hair looks good on him. You know I think he is too pretty(lol), but I have to say beautiful people usually still look beautiful with or without hair and he is no exception (isn't it unfair? ;p).

    Wish you a great weekend!

  5. He is 30 year old?! OMG, he looks baby face like he's 20! And I agree, he pulled off the buzz cut so well, I don't think many can pull it off as well as he does.
