Boy group BTOB member and actor Yook Sungjae has decided to start fulfilling his military service early, as he will enlist in the army on May 11.
On May 3, following his birthday, Yook Sungjae thanked Melody (BTOB’S fandom) and announced on his SNS that he would join the military on May 11.
Yook Sungjae wrote, “Many of you may be surprised, but I have decided to join the military on May 11. I’m sure some of you are surprised and worried about the sudden notification, but I’m not worried at all because I’m confident that I can be loved wherever I go and live bravely just by looking at Melody’s love so far! I think I can go there comfortably!”
He continued, “There will be an inevitable hiatus due to the continuous enlistment of BTOB members, but with Melody waiting for us, BTOB is cheering up, dreaming of a day to meet again! There’s only a few days left, but before we go, we’ll be able to communicate with Melody,”
He didn’t forget to reassure fans that BTOB will always be with them, saying, “Our oldest members are coming out [of military], and Mystic Pop-up Bar will air soon, so if you wait a little longer, BTOB will be here soon!” He added,“We are always grateful and we hope to continue to have your support.”
