2PM’s Wooyoung Discharged From the Military Early Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak
JYP Entertainment recently announced that 2PM‘s Wooyoung was discharged from the military early due to the regulations set by the Ministry of National Defense following the coronavirus outbreak in Korea.
JYP Entertainment stated, “While Wooyoung was on his year-end vacation, he was discharged instead of returning to the military.”
Although Wooyoung was set to be discharged on coming the coming 28th, he was discharged early due to the new regulations set by the Korean government.
Ahead of this modification, the Ministry of National Defense held a meeting in order to discuss countermeasures regarding the recent surge in coronavirus cases in Korea.
On the 22nd, the Ministry of National Defense enforced tight control over the soldiers’ vacation, leave, and visits.
But for the soldiers who were currently on their year-end vacation ahead of their discharge, the regulations were modified so that they would be immediately discharged rather than having to return to base.
JYP Entertainment also stated that they canceled the fan meeting scheduled for the day of Wooyoung’s discharge out of consideration for the health and safety of fans.
We were preparing to arrange a location so that Wooyoung could thank his fans, but in light of the recent surge in coronavirus cases, we decided to cancel it out of consideration for the artists and fans’ health.
Instead, Wooyoung will be holding a live broadcast in the near future so that he can greet his fans in a safer manner.
