Fans of TVXQ's U-Know Yunho have another chance to see him act before he enlists in the military.

The singer-actor will appear in the SBS web series "I Order You," which also stars Kim Ga Eun, Jang Sung Jo, Goo Jae Yee, Jo Yoon Woo and Baek Jong Won.

The actor is busy filming but his enlistment date is so close that he may not be able to see all of his drama before he reports for duty.

At the June 29 press conference for his new web drama, he spoke about his upcoming schedule.

"I enlist on July 21," he said. "I thought a lot about this drama, but I also had fun and it was a good environment to work in. I can't finish watching this drama but the producer promised to send me a file."

All Korean males, 18 to 35, are required to serve two years of mandatory military duty. Yunho will receive five weeks of basic training at Yangju, Gyeonggi Province before beginning his service as a regular active-duty soldier on August 25.

According to the drama's producer, Yunho put extra effort into his performance because it would be his last one for a while.

"He's done his best so far," said the drama's producer Ahn Gil Ho.

Yunho agreed that he worked hard to provide fans with a positive experience.

"I approached the drama role with great sincerity and I hope my efforts reach everyone," said Yunho.

"I Order You" is the story of a heartbroken divorced man who learns to love again.

Yunho plays Yeo Gook Dae, a talented chef whose brash attitude hides his broken heart. He meets Park Song Ah, played by Kim Ga Eun, when she visits his lunchbox shop. The two start off arguing, which means they are meant for each other. The drama is based on the web novel of the same name. The first episode airs on July 6.

Yunho has appeared in dramas in both cameos and leading roles. His last leading role was playing Kang Moo Suk in "The Night Watchman's Journal." For that role he was nominated for an MBC Drama Excellence Award, Actor in a Special Project Drama. He also had a leading role in the drama "King of Ambition," winning a Seoul International Drama Award for Most Popular Actor. 

This year he can also be seen in the documentary film "SMTOWN: The Stage."
