Jung Yong-hwa greets fans with a new haircut.
On March 4, a day before he enlists, CNBLUE member Jung Yong-hwa took to social media with a special picture and message for his fans.
Dressed comfortably, Jung looks ready for his enlistment with the mandatory military required buzzcut and a relaxed pose. Accompanying the casual photo, Jung told fans “Everyone, I will be joining the army tomorrow. Always take care of your health, always support your dreams and accomplish your goals.” He continued, assuring fans that he “will go and return safely, so please don’t worry” and told then that “during that time, always only be happy!” He concluded his message with “For a short time, goodbye.”
Jung Yong-hwa will enter the 15th Infantry Division’s training came in Hwacheon County, Gangwon Province on Monday, March 5th. Leading up to his enlistment, Jung has been preparing for the day by slowly wrapping up loose ends. This past Friday and Saturday, the singer help a two-day fan meet where he greeted and performed for fans.
However, while he has been able to say goodbye to fans, he will not be able to do the same to his recent scandal. In February the singer was accused of entering the graduate school of modern music at Kyung-hee University with a fraudulent application.
Additionally, after a police investigation, it was revealed that Kyung-hee University did not have Jung undergo the standard interview process before accepting him. As a result, prosecutes may indict Jung for obstructing business as usual. This is a bit surprising given that it appears to be the university’s fault.
Meanwhile, Jung’s expected discharge date is December 2019.
