Ji Hyun Woo‘s military enlistment date has officially been set. The actor will enter the army August 7 and begin to receive basic training. Fortunately, he won’t be leaving without saying goodbye to his fans first through a fan meeting that will be held July 22.
I have translated Ji Hyun Woo’s recent cyworld message in which he talks about saying goodbye to his 20s, as he will be in his 30s when he comes out of the army in two years.
How have you been doing?
I’ve been doing well.
Coming back to normal life…I’ve been living a warm and cozy life.
My 20s…When I look back at it now, I’ve lived it to the fullest.
I’ve worked harder than anyone else,
almost to the point of being foolish.
People may have been curious about why I lived liked this…
Truthfully, there were things that I didn’t want to do.
When I think about it now,
the charm of the 20s is having to do the things that you don’t want to do and enduring them.
In your 20s you believe that there is something to learn by doing that so you can endure it…
You have to have done things you didn’t want to do in order to understand what “good” means when you do something that is good.
Ji Hyun Woo’s 20s…
I am happy to have met those of you who are reading this.
I am truly thankful…I will repay that gratefulness.
I thought about what I could do for you while I am in my 20s.
So after much thought, I will hold a small concert.
With those of you who have quietly supported and cherished me,
I’ll be holding a concert for the last time in my 20s.
Let’s meet July 22.

Not everyone can claim that did their best so I’m happy that Ji Hyun Woo can look back at his twenties with satisfaction. It’s not easy to claim, “I’ve worked harder than any one else,” and the fact that he can say it shows his character. He seems to definitely be a hard worker and also know how to take the bad moments in stride, as well as enjoy the good moments. (It’s something I admire in Hyun Bin too.)
I’m so glad that I watched Queen In-Hyun’s Man and got to know the actor Ji Hyun Woo a little more. I’m also happy that it was his last project before he entered the army. The happy experience of the drama will stay with him while he is the military and will also be a good memory for fans as we wait for him to return.
