Super Junior's Leeteuk Enjoying Army Life

3 November 2012

MANILA, Philippines - Super Junior's leader Leeteuk seems to be adjusting well to his new endeavor in the Korean military.

A photo of Leeteuk smiling brightly together with other trainees was posted on the 306th Army Reserve online cafe.

The photo shows Leeteuk together with Mighty Mouth's Sangchu. The two enlisted in the army last Oct. 30.

Leeteuk will be training for five weeks as part of his 21-month mandatory service in the army.

He joins other Korean celebrities who are currently serving the army. Among them are Super Junior's Heechul, Rain, SS501's Kim Kyu Jong, 8eight's Lee Hyun, TRAX's Jungmo and actor Kim Dong Wuk.

Hundreds of Korean and international fans went to the 306th Support Group at an army camp in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi province in South Korea on Leeteuk's enlistment day to see him off.

Super Junior members including Donghae, Shindong, Kangin and Kyuhyun were there to give moral support to Leeteuk.

In the next two years, Super Junior will be performing without their leader.

On Nov. 2, Super Junior performed at the "Music Bank World Tour" in Chile along with other groups MBLAQ and CNBlue.

Leeteuk is the third member of Super Junior to fulfill military duties.

In 2010, Kangin enlisted in the army and was discharged last April.

Heechul followed last year and is now serving as a public service personnel. He will be discharged from the army next year.
