Wishing Zico a safe and meaningful military service!

Well-loved K-pop star Zico bids his temporary goodbye to fans as he officially begins his mandatory military service today.


Earlier today, the idol entered the Army Training Center in Nonsan, Chungcheongnam-do. He wore comfy clothes such as a white shirt, black shorts, cap, sneakers, and mask. He will be receiving basic military training for about four weeks.  Afterward, he will serve as a public service worker.

Zico is the fifth member of Block B to begin his duty in the military.  The other members of the group that already started their service include Jaehyo, who was discharged in December 2019, Taeil, B-Bomb, and U-Kwon.

Born in 1992, Woo Ji Ho, better known as Zico, debuted in 2011 as the leader of Block B. The all-rounder idol eventually made his debut as a soloist in 2014. Some of his remarkable hits include “Artist”, “I Am You, You Are Me”, “Bermuda Triangle”, and “Any  Song.”

The multi-talented singer-producer recently participated as a mentor on Mnet’s newest idol reality show I-LAND. Meanwhile, in related news, Zico received a special gift from WINNER’s Mino. He took to Instagram to share the snapshot of the hearty full course meal sent by his good friend.
