South Korean actor Kim Soo Hyun is best known for his role as Do Min Joon, a handsome alien with enhanced physical capabilities in South Korean drama You Who Came From The Stars.
According to his label Key East, Soo Hyun earned himself a reward vacation and was assigned to the first Reconnaissance Battalion after ranking fourth among training soldiers recognised for their excellence.
Photos from his time in basic training at the Recruit Training Squadron in Gyeonggi Province were recently released via the Forward Recruit Training Squadron’s official site, and showed the 29-year-old in uniform as he carried out his tasks.
In the photos, Soo Hyun was focused on his training, portraying an image different from his usual gentle demeanour. Even though his skin had gotten visibly tanner, it had nothing on his charismatic good looks as netizens gushed that the “photos look like they came from a magazine”, and “he is so handsome even without any makeup on”.
Kim Soo Hyun enlisted in October 2017, and will be serving the rest of his military duties in the Reconnaissance Battalion force until his scheduled discharge on July 22, 2019, as fans eagerly anticipate his return to the small screen.
