[NEWS] 150403 TVXQ’s Yunho Is Expected to Enter Military This Year

In response to rumors in the Japanese media, SM Entertainment has announced that there has been no official decision made about when TVXQ‘s Yunho will be beginning his military service. However, a representative of SM told Xportsnews that it seems that he will be heading to the army as an active-duty soldier before the year is over, in order to fulfill his required military service.

According to the Japanese newspaper Sankei Sports, Yunho cried as he said goodbye to fans on April 2 at a concert at Tokyo Dome. The concert was part of TVXQ’s tour that celebrated ten years since their Japanese debut. Sankei Sports reported that Yunho told fans that he won’t be able to take part in concert tours again for a while.

This news comes after Yunho’s former bandmate Jaejoong enlisted in the army on March 31.

SM Entertainment is preparing fans for the tearful goodbyes to come, revealing that the idol is indeed set to enlist this year as an active duty soldier.

TVXQ recently shed tears at their Tokyo dome concert, telling their fans, "Although we can't hold concert tours for a while, we promise to come back," hinting that group activities will probably be put on hold for some time.

When asked about what the two meant when they said that, SM told the press, "It's true Yunho is planned to enlist as an active duty soldier this year, but the specific time period has not yet been decided on... As he does have to go this year when looking at his age, it seems that's why he said that at the concert. Timing wise, it was their last Japan tour before enlistment."

  1. Oh..!
    Even though it is expected (after Jae Joong has joined), I feel so sad for Yunho's enlistment as well...

  2. NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I came hear after seeing on another site that Jaejoong had entered the military March 31st. But then I saw an Instagram photo with Jae in it and was confused and relieved. So he has enlisted? And now Yunho, too. I'm not ready for this guys.
