FNC Entertainment, Yong Hwa‘s agency made the surprise announcement on January 26.
The statement read, “Jung Yong Hwa has received his enlistment notice and will be enlisting on March 5.”
The agency’s statement continued, “We have unavoidably had to cancel all scheduled overseas tour concerts after the January 27 concert of ‘2018 Jung Yong Hwa Live [Room 622]’ in Hong Kong. We ask all the domestic and international fans, who dedicated their precious time showing interest in Jung Yong Hwa, for their understanding.”
“We will do our best to take adequate measures so that no one will suffer damages due to the remaining overseas tour shows.”
“We will also be giving a separate announcement about how [Jung Yong Hwa] will not be able to participate in CNBLUE’s announced upcoming tour,” the agency added. “We ask for your support so that he may return healthy and more matured after earnestly completing his military service at his country’s call.”
Jung Yong Hwa’s last solo release was six months ago with title track ‘That Girl’
It was only November that Yong Hwa talked about his military enlistment in an interview. He commented at the time that he was constantly looking for the right time [to enlist]. It looks like he found the right time!
