SHINee’s leader Onew will be enlisting this December.
On November 9, it was reported that Onew will be enlisting in the army on December 10. SM Entertainment confirmed the news and stated, “Onew has expressed his desire to have a quiet enlistment. We will respect his wishes and not reveal the location or time of his enlistment, and there will be no separate official sendoff event.”
Born in 1989, Onew is SHINee’s leader and oldest member, and will also be the first member from the group to enlist. The group made their debut in 2008 and celebrated their 10th anniversary this year with triple title tracks “Good Evening,” “I Want You,” and “Our Page.”
We wish Onew all the best during his time in the army!
