Jaejoong is headed for the military on March 31
Sigh. We all knew this day had to come sometime, but now it's here. JYJ's Kim Jaejoong will be leaving for his two-year military enlistment at the end of this month.
On March 4, the media received a report that Jaejoong had set his enlistment date, and his agency then confirmed the report. According to C-Jes Entertainment, the idol-actor is set to enter the military on March 31.
Jaejoong will be pretty busy until his departure. His last pre-enlistment drama, Spy, comes to an end this Friday. After that, he will be spending a lot of time with his fans at fan meetings both in South Korea and abroad, and he has his "2015 Kim Jae Joong Concert in Seoul — The Beginning of The End" concert scheduled for March 28 and 29.
Apparently, March is the big enlistment month this year. Actor Choi Jin Hyuk recently held his last fan meeting before his March 31 enlistment, and Super Junior member Sungmin will also be enlisting on the same day. Super Junior's Shindong is scheduled to enter the military on March 24 after he had to postpone for health reasons last November.
It's always sad to see our favorite idols and actors go, especially when they all leave at once like this, but just think how exciting it will be two years from now when they all come back around the same time!
The only way to make the enlistment pass faster is to re-watch Jaejoong's best work, like his award-winning performance in Triangle:
Good luck, Jaejoong! We will miss you!
