Actor Ji Sung has been designated as public ambassador of military affairs, the Military Manpower Administration (MMA) said on Wednesday.
``We believe the top star’s honest service in the military will be an excellent role model for young men and help promote the morale of our service members as well,’’ a spokesman of the MMA said.
During this year, Ji Sung will make a tour of provincial branches of the MMA and serve as a ``daily conscription officer,’’ he said.
Ji Sung, 30, who joined the military last June, starred the drama, ``All In.’’ He belongs to a ``military promotion unit,’’ affiliated with the Defense Media Agency. Most of the unit’s members are entertainers.
