BtoB’s Leader Eun-kwang: Full Profile and Updates on His Military Service

Cafe in Singapore

On January 19th, 2018, Eunkwang opened his bingsu (Korean shaved ice) cafe PLUS EIGHT TWO +82 which represents the country code for South Korea. This cafe is located at 9 Bras Basah Road, Rendezvous Gallery #01-02, Singapore 189559. All the Singaporean Melodies must be screaming out loud because at the grand opening they could meet Eunkwang oppa.

The cafe itself serves some desserts menu such as bingsu in various flavors and toppings, toasts, coffees, and many more. The interior design is such an Instagram-able situation with the fancy minimalist design, dominated with white and clean vibes.

Eunkwang’s Military Enlistment

kstarlive.com

All the Melodies out there are probably sad due to the abrupt announcement, a few months ago, about Eunkwang’s military enlistment. On August 6th, Cube Entertainment issued a statement that Eunkwang will be enlisting on August 21st as an active duty soldier. Eunkwang wanted to enlist quietly so the agency didn’t announce the location and the time Eunkwang got in. As the oldest member of BtoB, Eunkwang is the first one to enlist the military service.

As he felt sorry for his fans, Eunkwang released an apologetic statement through his agency: “I’m very sorry to the fans who felt surprised by the news of my enlistment. I’ve made many promises to my fans, so I feel apologetic and regretful for the ones I couldn’t keep. After fulfilling my duty to the country, I will return in good health and keep the broken promises.”

Because of this sudden news about Eunkwang, Cube Entertainment got some criticism due to their lack of management skills to prepare for the situation although the military enlistment was inevitable. Eunkwang was originally scheduled to perform in the musical stage Barnum: The Greatest Showman until October, which is among the reasons the audience was confused and complained, because they had already bought the tickets to see Eunkwang’s performance.

Well, let’s hope that Eunkwang will always be in good health and safe!

A Cast Member of Real Life Men and Women 2

Besides the BtoB-Blue comeback, Eunkwang also participated in the variety show Real Life Men and Women 2 that aired its first episode on August 10th, 2018. In this program, Eunkwang has to live alone, without the members of BtoB, after 6 years of their debut together.
