On September 13, Ahn Bum Jin, the producer of Star King, reported, “As far as I know, Leeteuk will join the army at the end of October. The last shooting in September will be conducted on September 17, but it might not be the last shooting for Leeteuk. The last day for Leeteuk will be decided according to the exact date he joins the army.”
Park Sang Hyuk, the producer of Kang Shim Jang, also said, “We don’t know when the last shooting for Leeteuk will be conducted yet. It depends on when he joins the army. We haven’t decided who will replace him, either.”
Leeteuk is currently appearing on Star King and Kang Shim Jang as a host and a regular guest. He left MBC TV’s We Got Married on September 8.
