what fans have been dreading has happened!
MONSTA X’s Shownu had previously written a letter to his fandom to let them know that he will be enlisting in the military on July 22. His agency also released a statement to announce that he would do basic training for three weeks before fulfilling the rest of his mandatory military service as a public service worker, this is due to his medical injuries which include surgery for retinal detachment in his left eye and a dislocated shoulder.
Ahead of his enlistment, Shownu posted to his group’s official Twitter account photos of himself with his new buzz haircut, he also wrote in the caption,
“Be careful of the Heat and take care of your health and happiness. I love you.”
Shownu has also shared photos with the rest of his group members who accompanied him to the training center, the caption of these photo reads,
“I promise to meet you again and to come back. I’ll return with a more mature and the better side of me, thank you.”
He also showed his affection and love for the fandom with the hashtag “I love you, Monbebe.”
We wish Shownu a safe service!
