Another Super Junior member is going to enlist in the army.
This time, it’s Ryeowook, who is the 2nd youngest member of the idol group. His conscription date is tomorrow (11th October) and he’ll be serving his country for around 2 years.
The vocalist will be starting his service at a recruit training centre in the 37th division in Jeungpyeong County, North Chungcheong Province. He will be training for 5 weeks before proceeding to serve as an active duty soldier for the next 21 months. He’s the 2nd last member to serve in the army, with only Kyuhyun left.
Ryeowook was supposed to enlist on 14th June, but due to unforeseen circumstances (read: Kangin’s DUI incident), the members had to rearrange their schedules to accommodate Super Junior’s activities as a whole. At that time, the idol group was touring Asia and North America for their 10th anniversary special event, “Super Camp”.
So far, Super Junior is left with only 4 active members – Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, and Kyuhyun. Aside from Ryeowook, 5 of the inactive members – Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, and Siwon – are in the army and Kangin is undergoing an indefinite reflection period due to his incident.
We’ll be waiting for you, Ryeowook!
