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 that “Fellow 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.
