In July 2019, INFINITE‘s Sungjong surprised his fans by announcing that he already enlisted in the military without their knowledge.

After a year and ten months, on May 8, Woolim Entertainment announced his return and shared that there hasn’t and will not be an event to celebrate. However, Sungjong was luckily able to reunite with his fans yesterday with a live broadcast!

I’m sorry for not telling INSPIRIT before I left, and I will repay you with as many activities as I can. I hope that COVID-19 will disappear soon so that we can to meet face-to-face instead of online. I will return with great activities and content. Thank you.

Sungjong also uploaded a photo as well as a message to his fans on his Instagram account to celebrate his return.

INSPIRIT! You’ve been waiting for a long time, right? I have successfully finished my military service and came back healthy! I missed you so much, INSPIRIT. As much as we missed each other, let’s see each other more often from now on. Promise me that you’ll always be healthy!
