The entertainment industry is hungrily awaiting the return of some of most popular male stars in their early 30's. It's almost guaranteed that you've at least heard of the following three names: Cho Seung-woo, Eric, and Jo In-sung.
The three actors are set to be released from the military very soon, and already the showbiz offers are pouring in.
Cho Seung-woo will be released October 23rd and apparently he's already made his decision on his first comeback performance. Cho will be starring in "Jekyll And Hyde", the musical. He's already considering his next movie role too. Already since six months before his release date, production teams were reportedly sending him scripts. Even now, projects that are in pre-production phases have expressed that they are willing to postpone filming to wait for Cho to be released.
As for Eric, he'll complete his military duties on October 30th. Similar to actor Cho Seung-woo, the singer too is being offered with drama and film roles. There were talks of him taking up the project that late actor Park Yong-ha was supposed to star in, "Love Song". However, due to various circumstances, Eric reportedly declined the offer. Reps for the leader of Shinhwa have shared that a lot of action movies in particular are being offered on the table.
Last but not least, arguably one of the most popular young actors to shoot to success within the past decade, Jo In-sung will be finishing his military service April of 2011. Though that's still a few months away, there are already rumors of an offer from a film project worth 10 billion won! It's safe to say that he's one of the most highly anticipated entertainers to return to the kpop scene.?Jo's reps coyly expressed that careful consideration will be taken when selecting Jo's first comeback project.
This is indeed good news for the industry, being that we will be re-gaining some tried-and-true talents. However, when the topic of military service comes up, there's always temporary losses to even out the gains. We'll be losing Kang Dong-won to the military at the end of this year. Early 2011, actor Hyun-bin is set to enter and start his compulsory duties.
