While SHINee‘s Onew is enlisting in the military today on December 10, a photo of Onew with shaved head and his hand-written letter were posted on SHINee‘s Instagram.
Onew will enlist as an active-duty soldier today, and he will be assigned to his post after completing 5-week basic military training. As he wanted to enlist quietly, the time and location of his enlistment will not be revealed.
Below is the full translation of Onew‘s letter:
How have you been?
I will be taking a break for a while.
It was and will always be sad,
but please think of this short break as time to improve myself to become a better person.
And above all, health is important.
I will pray for all of your health and happiness.
I will keep singing,
so please listen to my voice again when you think of me.
I will say hi again when I return.
Thank you so much.
See you again!
