Lee Min Ho will have to say bid his goodbye a few weeks from now for his enlistment. And just like anyone of us, the Hallyu actor is also sad after realizing a few things that come with the duty.

"I thought I would be totally cool with it and I thought it would be nothing. But I do feel a bit sad, too," he said as per Soompi. "It's not about the fact that I have to enlist that makes me sad, but the fact that I'm at the end of my 20s."

The "Legend of the Blue Sea" actor, who will turn 30 on June 22, will render his public service employee at the Gangnam District Office in Seoul starting May 12. An affiliate of Lee Min Ho said the actor was given the assignment due to his past car accidents.

According to Allkpop, Lee Min Ho's MBC documentary titled "DMZ, The Wild" will serve as his farewell project before he formally begins his duties. Despite his impending hiatus, the actor humbly looked back at his career as one of the most in demand actors of Korea.

"I'm lucky to have acted during a great era and I was able to get a lot of love overseas, and I'm happy that I was able to contribute to Hallyu in my own way," he said.

For his assignment as a public service worker, Lee Min Ho admitted that having a daily routine would be the main challenge for him on top of leaving his fans. He, however, assured them that he will gift them with a comeback project once he finishes his duty.

"I feel all the fans' sadness and their support. I'd like to come back healthy and heal them again with a great project," the actor promised.
