When Super Junior’s Kyuhyun enlisted in the military a few days ago, one word from him saddened the fans: “Goodbye.”
Kyuhyun entered the Korea Army Training Center in Nonsan, South Chungcheong province in Korea with hundreds of fans in attendance to send him off.
He is undergoing four weeks of basic military training before he is assigned as a public service worker. He is serving for two years and will be discharged on May 24, 2019.
Hours before enlistment, he posted a photo of himself with a shaved head on his Twitter account, writing, “Until the day we meet again, goodbye.”
To commemorate his enlistment, Kyuhyun released the song “Goodbye For Now” on May 24 as a gift to his fans.
SM Entertainment also released a music video titled “Kyuhyun’s Super Time Machine” that pays tribute to Kyuhyun since his debut in Super Junior in 2006 and shows his fan meeting.
Kyuhyun, 29, is the youngest among Super Junior and is the last member to enlist in the army.
He will serve as a public service worker based on his medical exam. He was severely injured in a car accident in 2017 along with other Super Junior members.
