Choi Siwon‘s interview before his enlistment aired.
On the November 21 broadcast of KBS 2TV‘s entertainment information program “Entertainment Relay,” Choi Siwon gave an interview.
About having to shave his hair and beard, he says, “Both is okay. I have short hair to begin with, so there won’t be much change.”
He also explains why he decided to enlist in private. He says, “If I go and there’s a spotlight on me, I thought it would be a nuisance to trainees and recruits.”
He adds, “At this point when I’m enlisting, I’m thinking of my parents the most. I’m always a lacking son, but I wish I would have spent more time with them.”
Lastly, he promises, “I will come back and show an even more improved version of myself.”
Netizens responded positively, saying, “Have a safe service!” “He’s handsome! We hope to see you with another great work after you come back,” and “It was a stroke of luck to have filmed ‘She Was Pretty‘ before he left!”
Meanwhile, Choi Siwon co-enlisted with TVXQ‘s Changmin on November 19 and has started his basic military training.
