I’m here because I have some news and I wanted you to be the first people to know about it.
Hm… I will be enlisting on April 2!
Though I will be apart from our Inner Circle for a bit, I will be healthy, brave, and do well, so our Inner Circle should also do your best in whatever you’re doing and put your health first! I hope you will be well.
And most of all, I am happy that we released news of our album, which is like a gift to us and you, before I go! We prepared it with so much joy in our hearts, and I’m so happy that we’ll get to listen to it with Inner Circle.
We still have good times ahead of us, so let’s smile and be happy! Though I haven’t been able to repay everything I have received, you know that Inner Circle is always No. 1 in my heart, right? Hehe.
And to my dongsaengs [younger brothers], who are now like real brothers to me.
I’m always grateful and I love you!
To Inner Circle, who always hold us up whenever and wherever! I’ll be well while I’m gone! Please take care of my dongsaengs.
Let’s meet again after I’m back! Stay healthy! I sincerely love you.
