2017 is a bittersweet year for ELFs. On one hand, 3 of the members – Eunhyuk, Siwon, Donghae – will be discharged from the military; on the other hand, Kyuhyun has to conscript.
However, the maknae will be dropping a special track to bid goodbye to fans before entering the military. The song, aptly titled “Goodbye For Now (다시 만나는 단)”, will be made public on 24th May, a day before his enlistment.
To make it even special, it will be released in 3 languages – Korean, Japanese, and Chinese. The song will also be dropped at 6pm KST (5pm Malaysian time) simultaneously in all 3 countries.
Those who are interested in the track will only be able to pre-order from 8th May to 15th May.
Although it will be barely 2 weeks to his enlistment, Kyuhyun is currently shooting “New Journey To The West Season 4” in Vietnam. He and his fellow casts, Kang Ho Dong, Eun Ji Won, Lee Soo Geun, Ahn Jae Hyun, and WINNER’s Mino, were spotted by fans in the airport and various other locations yesterday (Sunday, 7th May).
Last month, SM Entertainment revealed that Kyuhyun will be conscripting as a public service worker on 25th May at Nonsan Army Training Centre. He received a ruling which allowed him to enlist as a public service worker due to a car accident in 2007, which cost him a fractured hip, pneumothorax from broken rips, as well as facial scratches and bruises.
The maknae is the last Super Junior member to enlist in the military after 2nd youngest member Ryeowook.
