Se7en Enlistment, “Sandara Park’s Gifts are Lotion and Lipbalm”


On the day of Se7en‘s enlistment, 2NE1’s Sandara Park and singer Gummy, were there with him on location to send him off.

On the broadcast of SBS “Midnight TV Entertainment” on the evening of the 20th, it showed the events that happened during Se7en‘s enlistment on the 19th.

In front of the reporters who had assembled on that day, Se7en said, “Sandara Park and Gummy came along to see me off. For that, I’m very grateful,” he followed with, “To be able to do well in the military, they gave me lotion and lip balm, I’ll use it well,” he said with a laugh.

The day before enlisting, Se7en participated in a photoshoot, “During the shoot, I had my hair cut. It was really cool,” he said. The reporter then asked, “Has Park Han Byul seen how you look with your haircut?” Se7en answered with, “She hasn’t seen it, actually. Right now she’s overseas for a photoshoot. She didn’t see me yesterday,” he said.

Se7en then remarked, “I’m sorry for that I enlisted this late. I hope that all of you will live healthily while I serve in the military as a soldier, until the time I can meet you all once again as Se7en,” he said.

News: Se7en “2NE1 promised to visit me in the army”

Se7en “2NE1 promised to visit me in the army”


Korean singer Se7en has proudly enlisted in the Korean army, while his dedicated fans from Japan and China came to get a glimpse of the star who will be away from the entertainment scene for the next two years.

Se7en entered a boot camp located in Uijeongbu City in Korea on March 19 to fulfill his five-week military training and serve as an active-duty soldier for the next 21 months.

The 28-year-old singer was admitted to the 306th draft, where countless Korean youngsters have burst into tears or pretended to be okay, in the midst of much media attention.

After hours of waiting, the big black van came to a front yard of the boot camp and when the R&B singer, donning all black outfits and a baseball cap, stepped out of the vehicle, flash lights from reporters and loud shouts from some 100 fans burst out simultaneously.

“I happened to be the first one to enlist in the army from YG Entertainment, so everyone at YG gathered together last week and gave me a farewell party. It was a very pleasant and happy time,” the singer said about how his firm treated him as the first artist to serve the mandatory military service.

At the reporters’ request, the “When I Can’t Sing” singer bashfully unveiled his freshly-cut short hair after he told them the self-cutting experience was “very cool.”

He also mentioned the possibility of a girl group visiting him in the military, raising expectations of 600 thousand Korean soldiers currently doing their military duty.
My close friends 2NE1 promised me to visit me in the army. To tell you the truth, my labelmates Gummy and Dara of 2NE1 accompanied me here. It is so nice of them to do so. We had lunch together a while ago, and it gave me a lot of confidence,” said the YG artist.

After expressing his gratitude to his fans from abroad, Se7en made a resolution that, “I’ll do my best as a soldier Choi Dong-wook [his real name] not as the singer Se7en for following 21 months. I hope you stay healthy and happy until I come back as Se7en again.

Thank U,” his last song before joining the army, was released on YouTube the same day with a compilation video of his ten years of activities.

Video: Media Coverage of Se7en’s Enlistment – Dara and Gummy Were Confirmed on Location

Note  that I am putting in the english translation of the video itself. ^^ MediaVop, the uploader and the one who took the video said in the comment (they deleted it an hour later): 2NE1 Sandara Park and Gummy were on location, and shared a meal with Se7en before he went to the enlistment camp. So yay, here is our confirmation that Dara and Gummy really went! ^^ I love their friendship! <3 At 2:15-2:19, Se7en mentions that Dara and Gummy were there as well and thanked them for their support even until that moment when they went with him to the camp. ^^

Se7en Goes for Military Enlistment – “Thank You For All Your Support. I Will Miss All of You”

Sandara Park and Gummy Rumored to Have Been in Location to See Se7en Off


On the afternoon of the 19th, singer Se7en enlisted into the army at Uijeongbu 306 Reserve.

On that day, Se7en told reporters who gathered to cover his enlistment, “As all men are mandated to join the military force, I will finally enlist. I am sorry for that I had to enlist at such a late age,” he said. He also said, “For two years, I will not be singer Se7en, but would be soldier Choi Dong Wook. I will try my best.

Although Star News reported that no YG Entertainment artists went to see Se7en off because of “security purposes” owing to the large number of fans that went to the area (though in the same article, Se7en said that they wanted to go, but YGE discouraged them to), OBS News reported thatFellow YG Entertainment artists, 2NE1’s Sandara Park and Gummy, went to the location to see Se7en off. Se7en acknowledged the support of his labelmates, ‘I am grateful to my fellow artists who never stopped showing their support until this moment,’ he said.

Unfortunately, until this time, there are no pictures as of yet, to evidence that Dara and Gummy did indeed go to the location to see him off, although sources do guarantee that they can at least confirm Dara at the location. It might be that the two artists decided to stay in a safe location away from the crowds so as to keep the focus on Se7en himself, and only a few reporters noticed them. However, whichever way it is, their support for Se7en is sure.

Se7en also revealed that he would miss group 2NE1 the most. He revealed to reporters at the location that, “I will really miss 2NE1,” he said, “They are colleagues that have always been close to me,” he further states. He also revealed that, “Before I left, 2NE1 cheered me on a lot,” speaking of their close relationship.

Meanwhile, Se7en released the song, “Thank U” with an MV, in gratefulness for fans who have supported him in his 10-year career.

Fan-Account/Information: YG Family Gives Se7en Lots of Love at his Talk Concert #ThankU

I will try my very best to consolidate all the various information, news, fan-accounts from Se7en’s Talk Concert, Thank U!



As most of you guys know, today, Se7en held his very last talk concert (Thank U) before entering the military. He will be enlisting on March 19 and will be in the military for roughly 1 year and 10 months. Today, YG Family went all out to attend and support Se7en’s concert. Big Bang, 2NE1, Gummy, Lee Hi and Tablo were reported to be present.

Dara and Bom were special MCs at Se7en’s Talk Concert. They hosted a Q&A segment where they asked Se7en questions from fans. While they were both up on stage, CL and Minzy were at the audience. According to various fan-accounts both special MCs were very witty and funny. Their MC portion went something like this:

DARA: Today, is Se7en-ssi called Se7en-nim? Or Se7en-sama? I don’t know what to call him.

DARA: Althoough we’re the same age, I don’t know how to call him. Se7en-nim? Se7en-sama? What do you prefer? (According to fan-accounts, Dara said this with a wacky expression so the audience was laughing.)

SE7EN: Call me Se7en-oppa.

DARA & BOM: We prepared various questions from fans who stayed with Se7en for the past 10 years.

DARA & BOM: Except for YG groups, which girl group are you going to miss the most?

SE7EN: I will answer that when I return (from the army). As of now, I’m not interested in any other (girl group).

SE7EN: Among the girl groups, I will miss 2NE1 the most. Even though they are my friends and juniors, 2NE1 is still my favorite Korean girl group.  I may have a lot of junior friends and dongsaengs but 2NE1 is the girl group in Korea that I like the most.  I’m not sure that I like 2NE1 the most. Instead, I’m VERY sure.

SE7EN: I want 2NE1 to visit me in the army and see their distinctive cuteness and sexiness.

DARA & BOM: We’ll surely visit right? We promise.

Dara said she will be pretty and wear a short skirt if she visits Se7en in the army!

Towards the end of the concert, while Se7en was still singing, YG Family went up on the stage with a cake. Se7en was surprised and he hugged them. After going up on stage,YG family sang together with Se7en and Se7en cannot hide his tears anymore so he continued singing while tearing up. YG Family also left messages for Se7en.

YG FAMILY: Always take care of your health and we will definitely come to visit you. Congratulations on your 10th anniversary too!

2NE1: We will send you letters and come to perform for you.

Big Bang threw Se7en seven times in the air so Se7en said to Bigbang, “Throw 2NE1 21 times on their 10th year anniversary too!” Seungri was joking like ,”We had to throw Se7en 7 times in the air, when 2NE1 enlists, do we have to throw them 21 times?”



When talk abt seven’s actor life,seven mentioned Dara and said:”Dara filmed drama before right?” Dara answered” yes,this is a painful point in my heart, I filmed only one episode,members got together to waiting for the live…and then they were just leaving quietly one by one…T.T I’ll try my best to perfect my acting skill, make myself to be a better actress to you all…” by 愚笨和迷恋是同一个词

YG staff voted for Se7en’s Top 5 Best Songs and PASSION was #4! One of the reasons was that many juniors still dance to it until today.

Dara: I have something to say about this.  I have a brother and he danced this for so many times.
Se7en: Yes I watched his dance before.
Dara: I even made him stand upside down (Se7en’s signature dancing pose, like number 7) any comment from you?
Se7en: Cheondoong danced very well :) He has the perfect height and perfect face :)
Dara: He’s a very hard-working friend :)
Seven: Please support MBLAQ as well :)
DARA: Thank you! Thankyou :)

News: 2NE1, Se7en, and Sean Share the Love Backstage at the “2013 Severance Love Sharing Concert”


YG Entertainment labelmates 2NE1Se7en, and Jinusean‘s Sean recently gathered together to help those in need at the ‘2013 Severance Love Sharing Concert‘ on the 7th.

Sean shared on his Twitter, “’2013 Severance Love Sharing Concert’ backstage with Se7en & 2NE1. It’s small but a big start, ‘A small sharing gives big happiness,’” and showed the YG Family sharing that big happiness backstage at the charity concert.

YG Entertainment has been helping those in need with the start of its ‘YG WITH‘ campaign through which a portion of the agency’s revenue gets donated to charity organizations as well as for the use of its artist’s individual charity projects. The campaign entered into a joint agreement with the Severance Hospital in 2011, and the agency artists have also been spotted visiting the children at the hospital.
