The Naval Education and Training Command held the 699th Completion Ceremony at the training ground in Changwon, South Gyeongsang Province on October 8. The 669th trainees made headlines including actor Park Bo Gum, Dikigil (USA), Kim Yeo Reum (Japan), and Oh Ji Han (USA), who voluntarily joined the Navy.
Park Bo Gum faithfully trained with his colleagues, the Navy explained. The actor poses with his fellow trainees wearing a mask in a newly released photo at the ceremony site.
The ceremony was held without inviting outsiders such as family members and acquaintances to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and block inflow into the military. A total of 1,297 trainees completed the program.
After the completion ceremony, they will receive maintenance training at the Yeha School of Education and will be assigned to units to carry out their duty of protecting the country’s maritime affairs.
Park Bo Gum joined the cultural promotion team of the Navy’s honor guard on August 31. He will be discharged in late April 2022 after completing his 20-month service.
