2PM’s Wooyoung Discharged Few Days Early As Part Of Military Protocol To Combat COVID-19
2PM’s Wooyoung has been discharged from the military a few days earlier than planned as a part of the Korean military’s efforts to combat COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).
On February 25, his agency JYP Entertainment stated, “Wooyoung was on his ETS leave when it was decided that he would be discharged early instead of returning to his military base to be discharged.”
Wooyoung was originally scheduled to be discharged on February 28, but was discharged early as a part of the Ministry of National Defense’s efforts to combat COVID-19 within the military. As part of the new countermeasures, the military has been restricting leave and visits for military personnel. For those who are on ETS leave, it was decided that they would be discharged early instead of asking them to return to their bases. Wooyoung was one of such cases.
Wooyoung enlisted as an active duty soldier in September 2018 and completed his duties as a part of the 21st division in Yanggu, Gangwon Province.
Welcome back, Wooyoung!
