On October 31st, Shinhwa‘s Andy concluded his two-year military duties and was welcomed back by a large group of fans.
He was dropped off by his fellow celebrity soldiers Lee Jun Ki, Lee Dong Gun, Park Hyo Shin, and Lee Wan at the Yongsan military PR center in Seoul.
As a member of Shinhwa, Andy was the only member to serve in active duty: Kim Dong Wan, Eric,Jun Jin, and Lee Min Woo all served or is currently serving as a public service personnel. With Andy finishing his duties, all Shinhwa members, excluding Jun Jin and Lee Min Woo, have successfully finished their military services. Jun Jin is scheduled to finish his duties in November, and Lee Min Woo is scheduled for February.
Andy stated with anticipation, “I’m happy, but I’m also worried about how I will be active in the industry. I think if I do as much as I did in the military, the outcome will be good.”
When asked about Shinhwa activities, Andy replied, “We plan on starting as soon as Jun Jin and Lee Min Woo finish their service. I think I have to practice much dancing.”
