Hello, this is Sungjae.
First of all, thank you to all of the Melody who helped celebrate my birthday yesterday.
I was wondering how to bring up this piece of news, but I decided to write this after thinking long and hard, because I will be going somewhere far away for a bit. I thought it was right to tell everyone first.
Many of you may be surprised, but I have decided to enlist in the military on May 11.
There will be people who are surprised and worried by the sudden news, but just from the reaction from our Melody, I know I will receive love no matter where I go and live on bravely! I have no worries at all!
Our BTOB members have enlisted in the military one after another, so there is no choice but for us to take a break.
Our Melody are waiting for us, so we, BTOB, are hanging in there, dreaming of a day we can meet you all again.
There are only a few days left, but before I enlist, there will be a a radio show where I can communicate with Melody, and Mystic Pop-up Bar will be airing soon. The oldest members will be back from the military soon. If you wait a little longer, BTOB and Melody will be back together soon.
As always, thank you so much, and please continue to support us. I hope everyone will be healthy and happy until the day that we are back together.
Sungjae will become the fourth member of BTOB to enlist in the military. Eunkwang recently completed his military service, while Changsub and Minhyuk are currently in the middle of their military service.
