B1A4’s CNU is reportedly enlisting in the military!
On January 4, a source from the industry reported that CNU will be the first B1A4 member to enlist in the military on January 22. After making his official debut as an actor in November with SBS’s “Ms Ma, Nemesis,” the idol-turned-actor had been secretly preparing to enlist.
Prior to his enlistment, the member will also participate in B1A4’s fan meeting event “Be the one. All for one” on January 5, which is their first official fan meeting as a 3-member group.
CNU made his debut with B1A4 in 2011. With Baro and Jinyoung’s departure in November, the group is currently promoting as a 3-member group. With the news of his enlistment, much attention also pours in regarding the enlistment situation for other members.
Wishing CNU the best of luck!
