Actor Jang Keun Suk, who was recently in “Switch,” will start his mandatory military service on Monday in Korea. Jang played double roles in “Switch,” one as a high profile prosecutor and also as a team leader similar to “Ocean’s Eleven.”

Jang was born Aug. 4, 1987, and has many drama hits such as “Beethoven Virus,” “Love Rain,” “The Royal Gambler” and “You’re Beautiful.” Jang, with his charm and looks, is very popular across Asia, especially in China and Japan.

His management agency said Jang is ineligible for active duty as he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2011.
