Hello. This is Woo Do Hwan.
You may be surprised by the sudden news, but I am writing this letter because I wanted to personally announce this to my fans first.
I am enlisting as an active duty soldier on July 6. I feel apologetic for not being able to directly meet you and say goodbye.
I was happy while doing every project I was in thanks to the overflowing love everyone gave me.
Thank you for watching over my 20s and loving me. Thanks to that, I was able to spend my 20s very happily.
I hope that you will be healthy and happy during these difficult times. I will return in good health and work to impress once again.
I love you so much and feel so thankful that I cannot express it fully in words.
June 24, 2020.
From, Woo Do Hwan.
