Hoya announces his sudden military enlistment after the Lunar New Year holidays


On February 5, former INFINITE member Hoya greeted fans via his official fan cafe. 

In a handwritten letter, Hoya delivered sudden news of his impending military enlistment, which will take place just two days from now, on February 7. Read his full letter below:

"Hello, this is Hoya. One whole month has already passed in 2019, and it is now the Lunar New Year holiday.
Are you having a good Lunar New Year? 9 long years have passed since I debuted. Doesn't time fly so fast? My twenties were filled with so much love from fans, that I cannot describe my twenties without mentioning my fans. I was genuinely happy because of HOLY (Hoya's fanclub name). I am truly thankful to you fans for giving me so many memories I will never forget for the rest of my life. 

In truth, I'm writing this letter to deliver a bit of sudden news. I will be enlisting once the Lunar New Year holidays end. 

I am very very sorry about delivering the news with such short notice, to HOLYs who may be surprised. Still, as it is a duty of a Korean citizen, I will spend the time well as a time for me to mature. I hope that you all wait for me while spending happy days. I will return healthy.
The next time I greet you, I will be a better person in front of you. Thank you and I love you, always." 

Best of luck to Hoya during his mandatory military service. 

  1. Hoya

I don't read Hangul, but the very fact that Hoya took time to write a hand written letter, speaks volumes about the kind of person he is. This small action was dripping with poignancy . Hoya truly cares about his fans. Stay safe in the army, Hoya. Your sweet gesture touched souls.
