Here is the full letter:
Hello, this is Hoya.
It’s already been a month since 2019 began, and the Lunar New Year is just around the corner.
Are you having a good holiday? It’s been nine years since I debuted. Time flies, doesn’t it? I think my 20s were so full of fans’ love that I couldn’t explain [my time] without them. I was truly happy because of HOLY [fan club name]. Thank you for giving me memories that I’ll never forget for a long time.
Actually, I am writing this letter to tell you some sudden news today. I’m going to join the army after this holiday. I’m sorry to all my fans who are surprised by the sudden news. However, since this is my duty as a citizen, I will spend my time becoming more mature than I am now. I hope you all will be happy while waiting for me. I’ll be back healthy. When we meet again, I’ll greet you as a better person. Thank you always, and I love you.
Lee Howon [Hoya’s real name]
Hoya debuted as a member of INFINITE in 2010, departed the group in August 2017, and is currently active as a solo artist and actor.
