After officially announcing that he woud be joining the army next month, Super Junior's Heechul sat down for an interview with Star News and revealed his thoughts on his upcoming enlistment. Heechul began, "I'm already going at a later age than most, so I wanted to enlist as quietly as possible. After I enlisted, I was planning to tell everyone through Leeteuk's radio program. Those around me, however, said that it wouldn't be respectful to my fans or to everyone else who had an interest in me, and I agreed. That's why I revealed my enlistment decision at the company today." He continued, "I briefly did think about delaying it, especially since it hasn't been that long since Super Junior's fifth album, 'Mr. Simple', was released, and also because it's doing so well... but I thought that it'd be better to just turn my decision into actions while I was still in the mindset. I actually feel more comfortable now that it's gone out. In the remaining time, I'll be concluding my broadcast activities as well as make a visit to my hometown in Kangwon-do. There are a lot of things I have to do." Heechul also thanked his members and fans by stating, "I'm really thankful to the Super Junior members. I'm too shy to say it directly so I texted them saying, 'You guys need your hyung.' I'm just so grateful for them and I trust that they'll lead Super Junior in a great way while I'm away." To his fans, he said, "Thank you for loving me unconditionally over the past six years. I won't, however, ask for you to wait for me. Instead, please support me again if you still like me when I come back with a heart of starting anew." Source + Photos: Star News via Nate
