Song Joong Ki to Receive One Extra Week of Basic Training
Instead of the usual five weeks, Song Joong Ki will be getting an extra week of training at the unit recruit training center.
On August 31, Division 22 Recruit Training Center posted on its official blog that the regular training of five weeks have been extended one more to make a total of six.
According to the Training Center, due to many holidays coming up, such as Chuseok, Armed Forces Day, National Foundation Day of Korea, Hangul Proclamation Day, there was a lack of training days.
So the transition day to an active base has been rescheduled for October 10, giving the new recruit one more week at the training center.
Song Joong Ki entered the army on August 27.
