Lee Seung-gi, a South Korean singer-actor currently in his mandatory military service, is to be assigned to the army's special forces unit.

The singer who entered the army boot camp last month, finished his basic training course on Thursday and will move to the special forces' headquarters to be further allocated according to his military specialty.

"Lee exited the army boot camp today, and his final allocation in the special forces will be decided by the end of the week," An army official told the media. "considering that Lee's military specialty is intelligence, he is likely to be assigned as an administrative staff."

Although Lee's task in the special forces is very likely to be a desk job, he is to receive further training such as paratroop training and the basic special forces training. The singer's mandatory service is to finish at the end of October 2017.

Meanwhile, Lee was at the center of fans' attention earlier this month with speculations of him going bald. The photos, which were uploaded onto various online communities, showed Lee being all serious about getting baptized at the boot camp chapel, but people concentrated their attention on the singer’s hair. Lee’s hair was cut short as a new recruit would do, but it was receding, almost to the extent of going bald.

The photos shook the fans since they did not know about the singer’s receding hair problem. Lee did a perfectly good job in it by keeping a hairstyle which he could hide the shocking truth.
