SHINee’s Key Shares Sweet Handwritten Letter Ahead Of Military Enlistment

With less than a day remaining until his military enlistment on March 4, SHINee’s Key has given his final farewell to fans.

On March 3, the SHINee member posted a handwritten letter to his Instagram where he thanked fans for their love and support and promised to return in good health.

Key’s letter reads as follows:

To. All my little freaks.

Hello, this is SHINee’s Key. Everyone’s doing well, right?

I debuted in 2008 and busily made it this far.

The precious memories I’ve shared with everyone have become the driving force for me to run towards the same place without getting distracted.

I’m always thankful, and I feel sorry that I couldn’t entirely express my feelings of gratitude.

I haven’t had long breaks before, but I’ve been called to enlist on March 4, so I won’t be able to greet you all for the time being.

Although many of you might feel hurt and disappointed, I know you’ve waited for this long before while waiting for album releases, so without many worries, I’ll bravely return in good health.

Please stay healthy and happy. I hope you’ll spend your time filled with love.

I’m always grateful, and I love you.

P.S. I’m leaving!!!!!♡


Key will be fulfilling his mandatory military service by serving in the military band. He is the second member of SHINee to enlist in the military, following Onew‘s enlistment last December.

Wishing Key all the best during his service!
