“Because of the fine dust and the differences in daily temperature range, it’s especially important to take care of our health nowadays. Everyone please be careful of colds during this change of seasons! Nowadays, the cherry blossoms have fully bloomed so beautifully. Have you all gone to see the cherry blossoms?? Soon after the cherry blossoms fade, there will probably be true spring weather, and I think it will be great weather to go for a walk! During this nice weather, I, as every other Korean man must do, am going to enlist in the military. I will be enlisting on May 8th at a recruit training center near Gangwon Province. I’ve been preparing my heart, but I received my draft notice so suddenly that I wondered how to tell my fans, and so I decided to write a letter like this. During eight years of promotions, I received a lot of great memories and energy. I think I will be able to return well after military life.
“I will return healthy and well!!
“I’m always thankful, and I love you so much!!
“And our members of F.CUZ! Please continue to give them love and support!
“Thank you. Thank you. For.U
