SHINee’s Minho And INFINITE’s Dongwoo Discharged From Military
Minho enlisted in the Marine Corps April 2019. According to COVID-19 protocol, Minho was allowed to take his 20-day final leave on October 27 and be discharged from home, but Minho decided to give up his final leave and stay at the army base to help train junior soldiers.
On the day of his discharge, two messages from Minho were shared on SHINee’s official website along with a photo.
His handwritten message reads, “To my SHINee World!! My SHINee World, whom I love!! Salute! I report that sergeant Choi Min Ho has been discharged! This day has come to me as well… It still doesn’t feel real, and I’m excited and happy! Our Shawol who believed in me and waited for me, get ready to run everywhere with Choi Min Ho! I love you.”
Minho shared the following words in an audio message:
Hello. Salute! This is Sergeant Choi Min Ho. SHINee World, as of November 15, 2020, I have safely completed my military duties. I’m happy, excited, and feeling an emotion I’ve never felt to have safely completed my military service, which can be considered both short and long. More than anything, I’m most happy and excited that the time has come for me to be with all of you again. I’d like to sincerely thank you for cheering me on and waiting for me during my military service. From now on, I’d like to create happy and nice memories together. I miss you so much, and I love you. You are always my hope. Salute!
Dongwoo enlisted on the same day as Minho as an active duty soldier. On November 15, INFINITE’s official social media accounts announced Dongwoo’s military discharge and congratulated him. He will be having a special live broadcast via V LIVE on November 16 at 6:30 p.m. KST to celebrate his return.
