Former VIXX Member Hongbin Enlists In The Military + Writes Message To Fans
Former VIXX member Hongbin has enlisted in the military.
Last week, Hongbin announced during a personal broadcast that he would be enlisting in the military. On August 18, the day of his enlistment, he posted on his Twitch community board to say goodbye. His full post is provided below:
I thought I had a lot to say, but now that I’m trying to write something, I enter a world of non-possession and wonder what the point of this is.
The process of enlisting and working towards the discharge date only begins today, but I think this will be a time of resolving something that has been weighing on my mind, so a part of me feels liberated.
Nonetheless, I still feel a lingering attachment to society because the times we had fun talking and playing during the broadcasts are still very vivid in my memory.
I’ll go and receive training safely, and after protecting the country well, I’ll return to do broadcasts again in a safe country.
I may change outwardly or inwardly after I return from the military, but I’ll go and come back with a smile, always keeping in mind the feeling of wanting return to have fun laughing and talking together again.
I will cheer all of you on so that the time I’m gone to protect the country can become a time for all of you to get at least a bit closer to doing the things you have planned and been wanting to do.
Finally… everyone… I’m really….
So.. So… This is crazy, enlisting in the military!
Previously, Jellyfish Entertainment announced that Hongbin had chosen to withdraw from VIXX and that the group would be promoting with the remaining five members in the future. That same day, Hongbin apologized to his fans through a Twitch stream, during which he also revealed that he had left the agency. After receiving basic training, Hongbin will serve as an active duty soldier.
Wishing Hongbin a safe service!
