Sungjong left a handwritten letter to fans earlier today announcing his enlistment through his Instagram account.
The letter states,
This is INFINITE's youngest member, Sungjong.
It's been a while since I've written a letter to you all. I've been thinking a lot before I started writing this, but I wanted to be the first to let our fans know, so I writing this to you now.
By the time you read this letter, I will already be enlisted in the military.
I'm sorry I didn't tell you in advance, I'm sorry and I'm sorry again :(
It would have been good to be able to see your faces before I left.
I'll at least show you my face from the different activities I did beforehand as a way to say goodbye.
I'll be back after a good and healthy military life.
Our Inspirits can wait for me for just a little while, right?
I'll come back as a strong and cool Sungjong.
I love you Inspirit.
I miss you Inspirit.
Don't forget Sungjong. Inspirit..."
Sungjong enlisted on July 22nd to begin his basic military training. Upon completion, he will serve as a public service worker.
