DAY6's enlisted members came together for a special performance!
As previously reported, KBS's 'Immortal Song' held a special episode celebrating the country's 72nd Armed Forces Day, which aired on October 1, the day the holiday is observed. The performer lineup included Psy, Jung In, ALi, LA POEM, Brave Girls, VIVIZ, Park Goon, Jung Sung Hwa, Jung Sun Ah, and Jo Hwan Ji. DAY6 unit Even of Day, including members Young K, Wonpil, and Dowoon who are serving in the military, also performed the DAY6 single "Time of Our Life."
Videos from the DAY6 performance, as well as photos of the members together during the event, became a hot topic on Korean online message boards, as the sight of enlisted members of the same group performing together is quite uncommon, especially on television.
"A group consisting of the Navy, KATUSA, and Army that was on the 'Immortal Song' Armed Forces Day special episode," a poster wrote, sharing photos of the three DAY6 members at the event. "Navy - Private Kim Wonpil, KATUSA - Corporal Kang Young Hyun [Young K's real name], and Army - Private Yoon Dowoon."
Netizens responded excitedly to the post, leaving comments that included, "DAY6, come back soon," "They're handsome even with their hair cut so short," "Why am I actually tearing up," "So cool," and "Proper eye candy."
Meanwhile, DAY6 member Sungjin completed his military service back on September 6. Young K will be discharged in April 2023, Wonpil will be discharged on November 2023, and Dowoon will be discharged on July 2023. The group has recently renewed their contracts with JYP Entertainment, increasing anticipation for their eventual comeback.
