Highlight’s Lee Gikwang & 2AM’s Jeong Jinwoon To Enlist In The Army This Spring
This coming spring won’t be as beautiful with the impending enlistment of Highlight’s Lee Gikwang and 2AM’s Jeong Jinwoon.
Highlight’s Lee Gikwang and 2AM’s Jeong Jinwoon has been added to the long list of male K-Pop idols enlisting in the military this year.
Highlight’s Lee Gikwang will be bidding fans a temporary goodbye as he gears up to begin his mandatory military service as a conscripted policeman. He will enlist at the Korea Army Training Center in Nonsan on April 18.
Lee will serve at the Gyeonggi Nambu Provincial Police Agency, together with fellow Highlight member Yang Yoseob.
“He is planning on entering the training center privately without any special events on the day of enlistment,” the idol’s agency stated.
Gikwang would be the third Highlight member to enter the military, following Yoon Doojoon last August 2018 and Yang Yoseob just last January 24.
Meanwhile, 2AM’s Jeong Jinwoon will also temporarily cut his activities as a musician as he enters the military on March 4. He will serve in the military band. The singer-actor will join fellow idols SHINee’s Key and VIXX’s N as members of the military band.
The 2AM maknae is the last to enlist in his group. Changmin already completed his time in the military, while Jo Kwon and Seulong are currently serving in the military.
