Highlight’s Son Dongwoon Pens Heartfelt Letter To Fans Ahead Of Enlistment
Highlight’s Son Dongwoon has shared a sweet handwritten letter to say goodbye to fans before his upcoming military enlistment on May 9.
His letter reads as follows:
Hello. This is Son Dongwoon. It’s been a while since I’ve written a handwritten letter. I’m not sure how I should start [this letter]. It’s already been almost 10 years since we’ve been together, and by the time you read this letter, I’m sure the absolute, momentary goodbye will have started. Each and every moment was enjoyable, and I was happy. There were countless good things, but it’s unfortunate that the feelings from those times, and the feelings from that air are slowly becoming blurred. However, when this time passes, I’m sure that new moments will be created. If you spend day after day with the memories we’ve had up until now, the day in which we meet again will come quickly.
Another thing that’s regrettable is that for the time being, I won’t be able to comfort you all, who laughed and cried and felt consoled after watching us and listening to our music, through new things. After returning, I’ll comfort you all a lot more. There’s still a lot of time left, but I’m laughing as I imagine joking around by saying things like, ‘Back in my days~ I heard the military is a lot easier now~’ in front of you all. Up until now, I was grateful (+ currently grateful) because you all were with me whether the wind was blowing or the warm sun was shining. I’ll continue to be thankful from now on as well. Take care, and I’ll see you soon.
When you feel tired, just look up at the sky, since it’ll always be there!
From everyone’s maknae [youngest member] Son Dongwoon.
Son Dongwoon will be enlisting on May 9. After four weeks of basic military training, he will train for another two to three weeks at the police academy. He will then complete his military service as a conscripted policeman. Son Dongwoon is the last member of Highlight to enlist in the military.
