The maknae’s enlistment is approaching.
Kyuhyun, the youngest member of Super Junior, will be conscripting as a public service worker on 25th May at Nonsan Army Training Centre. This was confirmed by SM Entertainment in a statement dated 24th April (Monday).
Earlier in January, SM Entertainment also explained that Kyuhyun will be fulfilling his mandatory military service as a level 4 public service worker for the Military Manpower Administration. The singer will also be receiving basic military training for 4 weeks.
The Super Junior member is enlisting as a public service worker due to a car accident in 2007, which almost cost him his life. He suffered from a fractured hip, pneumothorax from broken rips, as well as facial scratches and bruises from the accident. Due to the serious injuries, Kyuhyun received a ruling which allowed him to conscript as a public service worker.
He will be the last member to serve in the army, after 2nd youngest member Ryeowook. After his enlistment, the idol group will only be left with 5 active members – Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Shindong, and Sungmin. 3 of the inactive members – Eunhyuk, Donghae, and Siwon – will be discharged in a few months while Kangin is undergoing an indefinite reflection period due to his DUI incident.
