The leader and main vocalist of the popular Kpop band CNBLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa is enlisting in the military very soon.
On January 26, his agency FNC Entertainment released an official statement to their official website, in the statement they wrote,
“Hello, this is FNC Entertainment.
Jung Yong Hwa has received his enlistment notice and will be enlisting on March 5th.
Aside from his upcoming concerts ‘2018 JUNG YONG HWA LIVE [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][ROOM 622]’ in Hong Kong, from January 27th, Inevitably, we have canceled all future overseas tour schedules.
Thank you for your patience and understanding from the fans of Korea and abroad who have dedicated time and interest to the idol.
We will do our best to ensure that no fan will be affected through the proper procedure.
In addition, we will be giving separate announcements about the inability [of Jung Yong Hwa] to attend CNBLUE upcoming Tour.
We ask for your support so that he can return in a healthier and more mature form after faithfully fulfilling his military service at his country’s call.”
Andwaeeeeee, but guys don’t be afraid this isn’t regarding his recent controversy with Kyung Hee university, its because of the new law Korea implemented that no longer allows Korean celebrities to delay their military enlistment once they received their draft notice.
He was born in 1989. So it does make sense, this year I feel like all idols and actors born in 1988, 1989, 1990 will enlist this year. We will be saying goodbye to many more this year ☹
How will CNBLUE handle their upcoming tour? Their main vocalist is missing, I doubt they’d carrying on with the tour, but the penalties and the booked venues and all could hinder the tour cancellation. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next! I will miss him![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
