After completing 4 weeks of basic military training, SS501's Kim Kyu Jong has decided to begin his mandatory military service in July.
After achieving many accomplishments during his career such as releasing a solo album and acting in a drama, Kim Kyu Jong felt as though he could leave the entertainment industry for a while knowing he has already created a legacy.
"He could have postponed it a bit longer, but he thought it would be best to go now in order to plan out his later stages of life. After he becomes discharged, he plans to return to the entertainment industry with a lighter heart and mind," a representative stated.
The idol left a handwritten message to his fans. Check it out below:
