A photo of actor Song Joong Ki in his army fatigues has surfaced online revealing that the popular actor has already lost weight since beginning mandatory Korean military service last month.
In the photo, the 28-year-old screen star’s body appears slimmer and his cheeks flatter, suggesting that initial army training — which continues until October 10 — is burning off more than a few calories.
The handsome idol entered into service with the Chuncheon 102 Supplement Unit on August 27. Minutes before entering the Gangwon Province base, Song was waved off by over 200 fans and media members gathered outside the compound.
