Although it is hard to believe, Super Junior‘s Leeteuk‘s enlistment will be happening in the upcoming months, and as a result, his withdrawal from variety programs will inevitably be taking place over the course of this month and next month.
Leeteuk has already withdrawn from ‘We Got Married‘, and it seems he’ll soon be following suit on ‘Star King‘ and ‘Strong Heart‘.
Reports have surfaced citing September 17th as the last recording of ‘Star King’ the Super Junior member will be participating in before his leave. However, the PD of ‘Star King’ remarked, “From what I know, Leeteuk’s enlistment has been pushed back to the end of October… Although the last filming of ‘Star King’ is on the 17th for the month of September, this date may not be Leeteuk’s last recording.”
“It seems Leeteuk’s last filming date will change as Leeteuk’s enlistment date is confirmed,” he concluded.
The PD of ‘Strong Heart’ also offered similar comments, stating, “As of right now, Leeteuk’s last recording date is yet to be determined.. His last recording will be decided with his enlistment period, and we also have not yet decided on a candidate to replace him on the show.”
