Lee Chank-hyuk, a member of brother-sister duo band "Akdong Musician", will join a Marine unit next week for his mandatory military service.
The acoustic duo band's agency, YG Entertainment, said in a statement Wednesday that the 21-year-old will enter a Marine boot camp in the southern port city of Pohang on September 18. Lee wished to maintain a low profile but related information has been leaked.
Akdong Musician debuted via a TV music audition program "K-Pop Star Season 2" in 2012 and soon became one of South Korea's favorite bands. It is unclear whether Chan-hyuk's younger sister and main vocal Su-hyun will go solo until her brother finishes his service in 2019.
