Shinhwa leader, Eric Mun Jung Hyuk will be enlisted into the army on 9th October after receiving his enlistment notice this morning in his mailbox.
Eric will report on the afternoon of 9th October at Chungnam Nonsan training camp where he will then undergo five weeks of mandatory basic military training. Thereafter, he will then be be transferred to the civil service for a desk job. Eric was told in a body checkup that he had to serve the army when he gave up his U.S citizenship in 2000. But he suffered serious injuries to his neck, back and knees when something went wrong while filming for his drama “Wolf” in 2006. He was thus deemed to be fit only for a desk job.
The possibility of Eric releasing his own album before his enlistment is still high though. He is set to release his single album at the end of September or early October as a solo singer. He will be the last Shinhwa member to do so.
