On July 9, 2PM's Wooyoung reported in for the beginning of his basic military training and mandatory military enlistment as an active duty soldier for the ROK army.
Wooyoung is the 3rd 2PM member to enlist after Jun.K and Taecyeon. He desired to enlist quietly without any press coverage; as a result, Wooyoung simply showed fans a bright, wide smile with his hair cut short and neat via 2PM's official Twitter before his brief farewell.
Wooyoung's good friend Jo Kwon also took to Instagram on July 9 to share some text messages exchanged between the two idols before Wooyoung's enlistment. Wooyoung seems to have sent Jo Kwon a military salute selca, to which Jo Kwon said, "You didn't even get to eat TT. What time do you go in tomorrow." Wooyoung responded with, "I love you," to which Jo Kwon remarked, "Don't be sick Wooyoung. The friend who came in to the company wearing hip-hop pants is now 30 years old and going to the army."
Wooyoung then said, "Let's be healthy. I love you!"
Best of luck to Wooyoung during his 2-years of mandatory military service!
