Doojoon officially enlisted for his mandatory military duties on August 24, and Around Us Entertainment shared the handwritten letter below on September 5. The Highlight leader wrote:
"Are you all doing well? Are you healthy? The seasons are changing, and I'm worried for your health. Oh! Firstly, I'd like to say thank you. I'm reading every single online letter I receive and the handwritten ones too! When you all tell me stories from the outside world, I feel thankful and apologetic at the same time, so I've been uneasy the past few days. Thanks to you all, I know what my members are up to. Please tell them I'm doing well and to prepare themselves for their own enlistment. You all worried a lot because I enlisted without resting beforehand. Yes, I do feel sorry for myself too, but I'm putting on a smiling face for all the people I've caused trouble to. Before enlisting, I tried to prepare myself with a strong mindset, and the people close to me also encouraged me. It was still hard. I felt like everything was collapsing. No one knew, but I cried a lot because of the burdensome feeling of not wrapping up things. It still hits me from time to time, but I've adjusted to military life, so don't worry too much. I miss you a lot. I don't know how long the fact I didn't get to say goodbye properly will make me feel uneasy and apologetic. After all the other members finish their military service and we meet again, I might burst into tears. Anyway, be healthy. I'll write again when I get an official assignment. Be healthy and happy. Be careful of catching a cold. <3"
