Junsu of South Korean K-pop band JYJ is all set for his military enlistment in February 2017. The 30-year-old singer bid farewell to his fans during the 2016 Xia Ballad & Musical Concert with Orchestra Vol. 5 held in Seoul.
During his last orchestral concert before his military enlistment, he said: "I find it ironic to be wearing a military uniform for my 'Tears of Heaven' performance because this concert is my last musical&ballad concert before my enlistment."
He continued: "I like to think of it as a quick break. I think it's something all Korean men should go through, and I will make sure I take care of my health. Once that time passes, I'll come back and repay you for the love you all have given me."
Junsu's agency, C-JeS Entertainment stated: "Kim Junsu held his fifth end-of-the-year concert '2016 XIA Ballad & Musical Concert with Orchestra vol.5' yesterday and spoke honestly about his upcoming military enlistment. This concert was an amalgamation of his musical history, and all 20,000 seats for each of the three performances were sold out."
A representative from the firm added: "Kim Junsu had to carry the entire show, except for the three minutes he had for outfit changes. He had the hard task of portraying seven characters, and he was amazing and commanded the stage. It was a performance that only Kim Junsu could pull off, and he did his best to create the best stage he could possibly give his fans."
