It’s goodbye to Kwanghee for now.
ZE:A‘s Kwanghee has officially begun his mandatory military service last March 13.
The idol and Infinite Challenge member entered a basic training camp in Nonsan, South Chungcheong Province. He will undergo a five-week basic training before starting his military service in an army band.
Kwanghee bid goodbye to fans who gathered to see him off at the training camp and promised to return well. “I’ll return safely. I hope all of you to be healthy, and please don’t forget me,” he said.
Prior to his enlistment, the idol took part in the filming of Infinite Challenge and Radio Star. He also revealed that his good friends CNBLUE‘s Yonghwa, Highlight‘s Doojoon and Lee Joon sent him encouraging messages. The quartet participated in an episode of Infinite Challenge as Wedding Boys.

UFC fighter Choo Sung Hoon, popularly known as Choo Sarang‘s father, posted a photo of him and Kwanghee with a shaved head on Instagram.
Girl groups Gugudan, Sonamoo and Melody Day wished KwangHee well in his military service via a video greeting prepared by MBC’s Section TV for him. The show then gifted him signed albums of the girl groups.
