2PM's Jun.K is enlisting later today.
JYP Entertainment announced, "Jun.K will be enlisting quietly today (on the 8th) as per his wishes. The time and location will all be secret. Please understand."
In a handwritten letter before his enlistment, he wrote,
Hello, it's Minjun (Jun.K's real name).
I can't see you before I enlist, so I'm writing this. I don't think all my thoughts can be relayed through words, but I hope it can reach you at least a little.
I want to sincerely apologize once again for disappointing you through my wrong actions in February. Since then, I have been regretting it every single day. It is clear that I should be criticized for my wrongs. But I thought that from the pain that the people I love feel, I should definitely feel and understand something.
As a singer, and as a person whose job is to face the public and fans, I thought once again about how I've come so far. I thought about wandering between the two paths, one of my dreams about music, and the other of all the temptations of youth. When I look back, I know that I had to be more clear about my responsibilities on my actions as well as on the job I have.
Recently before my 4th solo tour, I did not have the courage to stand on stage. I did stand in front of you because I could not cancel the performance, but I also thought that I should see you personally and sincerely apologize. When I saw you, my heart ached. I was so much in pain and I was sorry. I should have known how big it was for us to be together, and how precious it was...
I won't sway. I will take all the criticism and whipping on my wrongdoings. I'll reflect on my actions and work hard to become someone who is not embarrassed of myself.
Fans have loved 2PM for 2PM and me for me for 10 years. The time I spent with the members, and with the staff that helped us all this time, is all precious, and I look back sincerely on myself.
I'm sorry that I'm leaving without being able to soothe all your pains.
