A few short hours ago, the above picture was posted on Yesung’s official twitter with the message, “I will miss it all. Stages, songs… I look forward to the day we meet again, ELF. No worries, love you all!”
May 6th is the day Yesung (real name Kim Jong-woon) reports for his enlistment to the Jeonbook Jeonju 35th Reserves. He will receive 4 weeks of basic military training and will then serve as a public worker for 22 months.
Anyone who follows Super Junior will have witnessed many changes in Yesung over the years. Always blessed with an amazing voice, he was never the strongest dancer of the group and was generally placed towards the back of the routines. Because of that, most fans will remember the charming story of how his mother cried when Yesung was featured on camera for 3 whole seconds during an onstage performance at the beginning of his career
