We wish it was just an April Fools’ joke, but it’s true – Eunhyuk has just entered the army.
According to Mwave, Eunhyuk joined the 102nd division in Kangwondo Chuncheon this afternoon (13th October).
Hundreds of fans gathered at the scene to bid final farewells to the singer. Some fans can be seen holding up placards which read, “We will wait in that summer”. His fellow group mates Leeteuk and Kangin were also at the scene to cheer for him.
Before entering the army, he said:
Thank you for coming all this way in the cold. As a Korean man, I will faithfully fulfill my military duties and return.
He continued by saying, “I will fulfill my military service well during the year and nine months. I love you, and thank you for cheering me on.”
He ended his speech with a bow while trying to hold back his tears.
Before Eunhyuk left, he also thanked fans for all their support through his social media accounts.
On one of his latest Instagram posts, he can be seen posting with an enormous pile of letters from fans who wish him all the best in the army.
Eunhyuk is the 7th Super Junior member to join the army. Donghae will enlist on 15th October while Choi Siwon will enlist in November.
See you in 2 years, Eunhyuk! We certainly hope ELFs are not going to get separation anxiety.
