The model-actor mentioned how he recently visited Siwan in the military along with the co-stars of MBC drama 'The King Loves'. He then chuckled, "I think Siwan hyung's current situation is my future."
He continued, "To be honest, who plainly likes the military. There must be some hardships and hyung looked very cool overcoming all of that. And watching him, I tried not to think about my enlistment (laugh)."
As for his plans for enlistment, Hong Jong Hyun said, "I just want to go without any thoughts. I'm planning for early or mid-2019 but I'm not sure of the exact timing. I want to try many productions before my enlistment."
