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.
