Wooyoung, a member of the 2PM idol group was about to be discharged from the military when his present leave ends, was discharged early instead of returning from leave in the aftermath of COVID-19.
The agency JYP Entertainment announced on February 25 that Wooyoung, who was about to be discharged upon completing his military service on 28, was discharged without returning during his last vacation.
This is related to the Ministry of National Defense’s efforts to combat COVID-19.
As part of the new countermeasures, the military has been restricting leave and visits for military personnel from February 22. For those who are on ETS leave, it was decided that they would be discharged early instead of asking them to return to their bases.
As a result, Wooyoung who was supposed to be discharged on 28 was one of such cases.
Wooyoung enlisted as a soldier in the 21st Division, in Yanggu-gun, Gangwon-do in July 2018, and completed his duties.
