Joo Ji-hoon comeback after three years

5 Oct – After his 2009's drug scandal and 2010's military enlistment, "Princess Hours" actor Joo Ji-hoon will finally be returning to his fans in November.

According to HanCinema website, the 29 year-old actor has signed an exclusive contract with Bae Yong-joon's Key East Entertainment earlier this year and although Joo Ji-hoon is forbidden from making on-air appearances on both KBS and MBC, plans for his return to the industry seem to be on track.

A representative from his agency revealed, "After being discharged from the military in November, he will be holding a fan meeting on 27 November and resume his activities", marking his comeback after a long 3-year hiatus.

On 23 June 2009, Joo Ji-hoon received his sentencing after pleading guilty to drug use of ecstasy and ketamine. His punishment was six months of jail with one year of probation and 120 hours of community service, plus a penalty of KRW 360,000. On 2 Feb 2010, the star left for the army.

Joo is known for his roles in previous hit works such as "Princess Hours" and "Antique", and his comeback has been anticipated by fans after three years.
