Following his recent mess of a controversy involving special admissions, FNC Entertainment has announced that CNBLUE‘s Yonghwa will be enlisting in the military.
On January 26, his agency FNC Entertainment announced, “Jung Yong Hwa has received his enlistment notice and will be enlisting on March 5.” The agency also explained, “We have unavoidably had to cancel all scheduled overseas tour concerts after the January 27 concert of ‘2018 Jung Yong Hwa Live [Room 622]’ in Hong Kong. We ask all the domestic and international fans, who dedicated their precious time showing interest in Jung Yong Hwa, for their understanding.” They stated they will do their best to make sure this does not negatively affect fans by following adequate procedures as well. “We will also be giving a separate announcement about how [Jung Yong Hwa] will not be able to participate in CNBLUE’s announced upcoming tour,” the agency added. “We ask for your support so that he may return healthy and more matured after earnestly completing his military service at his country’s call.”
This was basically his only move, public relations or otherwise, because he probably would’ve been a toxic property as a celebrity during the time he’ll be serving anyway. I doubt this makes anybody forget about the messes, but if he avoids further mess, he should probably be alright eventually. Then again, that’s what I figured when it came to the stocks things as well.
