Jo Kwon thanks fans before entering military


Jo Kwon, member of the boy band 2AM, bade farewell to his fans Monday as he joined the armed forces for nearly two years of mandatory military service.

The 29-year-old entered a military boot camp in Gangwon on Monday to start off his service.

“Jo Kwon starts his military service as a regular soldier after going through the basic military training,” his management agency, Cube Entertainment, said over the weekend. “The location of his enlistment will not be disclosed in keeping with his wish to make it a quite event.”

On Monday, Jo posted a group of photos and a video clip on his Instagram account, showing him getting a military haircut and a hand-written letter addressing his fans. The photos also include images of Jo with his close friends, such as fellow 2AM member Jeong Jin-woon.

The images were carried with the message “2018.8.6-2020.3.24,” indicating the time he will be spending in the military. “I will be back in good health. Thank you and I love you,” Jo also said.
