His military enlistment, though temporary, implies a pause on his musical pursuits and group activities, a decision that has left fans worldwide in a state of bittersweet anticipation.

Jooheon reassured his fans that this pause is just temporary and promised to return in good health. “I’ll come back healthy and well. I will always think of Monbebe. Please don’t worry too much about me and take care of yourselves,” he concluded in his letter.

The news has been met with a wave of support from fans globally, acknowledging Jooheon’s duty as a South Korean citizen and expressing their undying love and loyalty.
