The 29-year-old singer and actor said on Friday that he will enlist in the South Korean military next month. All able-bodied South Korean men are required to serve two to three years in the military, a legacy of the Korean War of the 1950s. Rain, whose real name is Jung Ji Hoon, said on his website that he hopes to come back 'more mature.' He said: 'I'll serve faithfully and diligently.' One of Asia's most popular stars, Rain made his Hollywood film debut in Speed Racer in 2008 and appeared in Ninja Assassin the following year.
