Lee Min Ho sat down for an interview with '@star1.' When asked, "How do you feel about entering the military?", the actor replied, "Honestly, I thought I was going to be cool about it. But there are many things I regret."
He went on to explain, "It's not that I regret going to the army, but the fact that my 20s is passing away right before my eyes. Now that I am approaching my 30s, I find a lot of things I could've done better in terms of projects. I am also sad because I am getting older."
Lee Min Ho mentioned the positive aspects of entering the military at a later age, "If I had gone to the military earlier, I would've missed out on starring in 'Boys Over Flowers' and often think whether or not I could've truly enjoyed my life in the 20s. I personally feel I made the right decision to not go to the army earlier. Because of that, I was able to meet with numerous loving and supportive fans overseas. I was happy to see the Korean Wave spread out to various parts of the world."
Meanwhile, Lee Min Ho will be leaving for the army on May 12 and serving as a public service worker at Seoul's Gangnam District Office.
