BtoB’s Im Hyun-sik, Yook Sung-jae to begin their military service on May 11
“I spent some time reflecting on BtoB’s activities and our songs after I found out [about my starting date],” Im wrote on his Instagram account on Wednesday. “What happy memories I have when I think of BtoB. I cannot wait until we are together once again.”
With Im and Yook beginning their mandatory military service in Korea, BtoB will go on a hiatus, as the group’s other members, Lee Chang-sub and Lee Min-hyuk, have already joined the military.
“I have no worries about my future because I know that there is love between us and you,” Im wrote to his fans. “I am quite looking forward to the day we meet again.”
BtoB, a six-member boy band, debuted in 2012 with agency Cube Entertainment, and has won several awards, including Singer of the Year at the 2015 KBS Song Festival and the Best Vocal Group Award at the 30th Golden Disc Awards in 2016.
