SHINee's Minho to Enlist on April 15 + Shares a Letter for Fans


Hello everyone~ it’s SHINee’s Minho!!

It seems like it’s been a while since I’ve written my feelings down. Everyone knows, right? I will be enlisting in the military on April 15. I’ll be momentarily separated from everyone for a short if it’s short, and long if it’s long while.

After debuting on May 25, 2008, time has passed by quite quickly, and I’m so happy and pleased to have spent it with everyone. These were moments I won’t be able to forget.

The many things I’ve been able to feel and all the things I’ve been able to grow into is thanks to your interest and support. When I took some time to look back, I honestly couldn’t imagine that I, who was lacking in many ways for a long time, would receive the strong support and love that is SHINee World [SHINee’s fanclub]. It was a warm consolation and huge relief for me, who only thought of running and working hard, and moving forward. Thank you once again.

The fact that there was someone beside me was a source of great happiness for me, and I think I’m going to miss SHINee World a lot, for helping me, who was always strongly looking ahead, look back and become soft and flexible, instead of always being so stiff. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to approach you all more often and express myself more. I’m really sorry..^^ But you know that I’m grateful and I love you, right??? I’ll remember the support that everyone gave me and return safely.

I’ll work hard in the military so I can come back to give everyone positive and good energy without disappointing anyone. Thank you and thank you again. And I love you!!

You guys are always my hope~

2019.4.14 SHINee’s Minho

PS. Everyone, you know that I’m Choi Minho, right? Don’t worry!! Victory!!!

Stay safe and healthy!

Since I know he's Choi Minho I fully expect the news to come out about him from the military to be along the lines of:

- Minho is awarded for exceptional conduct
- Minho gets rank promotion
- Minho is offered a job by the military but declines, saying "I love SHINee too much"
