Starship Entertainment, his agency, announced on the 10th that Shownu will enter the training center on the 22nd and receive three weeks of basic military training before working as a social service agent.
Shownu had eye surgery in July last year due to retinal detachment (a disease in which the retina falls off the inner wall of the eyeball), which led to the decision of alternative service, the agency explained.
Shownu posted a message on the fan cafe that day, saying, "It feels like yesterday when I debuted, but it's time to go to the military."
In order to prevent the spread of COVID 19, the location and time of admission will not be disclosed. There is no separate event on the day of admission.
