Song Mino from the group WINNER will enlist as a social worker.
Song Mino’s agency, YG Entertainment, told Newsen on March 2nd, “Song Mino will begin his alternative service as a social worker from March 24. There will be no separate on-site events to prevent safety accidents due to crowding.”
They added, “We ask for your warm encouragement so that Mino can fulfill his military duty and come back healthy.”
Information on Song Mino’s enlistment was also posted on Weverse, a fan communication platform. He seems to have health reasons as the reason for his alternative service rather than active duty. Mino complained of pain from a recurring neck disc several years ago.
Regarding this, YG added, “We ask for your understanding that it is difficult to disclose the grade and reason for the physical examination as it is personal information.”
