On the 29th of October, Korean entertainer Boom (aka Lee Minho) was sent off to active duty by his Boom Academy students, Super Junior's Leeteuk and Eunhyuk.
Boom had this to say about his successors of the Boom Academy, "I'm thankful for Leeteuk and Eunhyuk seeing me off, and I await to see good things from the Boom Academy from the two while I'm gone." Leeteuk and Eunhyuk said, "We hope to keep the cheery and fighting spirit style that Boom has kept alive on Boom Academy." as the three shared a heartfelt hug.
Boom was also thankful for all the idol groups like 2PM, Super Junior, SHINee, SNSD, T-ara who called and asked, "Who's going to take care of all the idol groups?"
When asked who he wished came to see him off, he responded with "my girlfriend."
Boom then revealed he met his girlfriend the previous night:
"we traded gifts and letters. She also cried a lot, I tried to stop her from crying, but it didn't work. Also, I looked up on the internet what guys who leave for the military should do for their girlfriends prior to leaving. It said to never ask the girlfriend to wait, therefore I tried to be a man and told her to leave. But at the end I got on my knees and begged her to wait for me. She then helped me pack everything I needed.
I hope to continue building our beautiful love."
He concluded by saying, "My parents are very sad that I'm leaving but I got to share a meal with my family and other relatives, sharing stories and having fun. Even my younger cousins wrote me letters and that was just absolutely adorable."
Good luck to Boom but even more luck to Leeteuk and Eunhyuk! It won't be easy to hold true to Boom's legacy! Boom will be released in 2011.
