Ahead of his enlistment, Jaejoong updated his personal Twitter with photos of his shorter hairstyle, adding, “It’s getting shorter (and) I’ll become bald soon. I have a precious (memory) of yesterday where many people I know, staff, actors, family members, Yoochun (good luck with filming), Junsu (good luck with your Japanese concert), my fans, all of you who came even though you were busy. I’ll be able to go in well because of I spent precious moments laughing and crying (with you).”
Jin Hyuk held his last official activity, a fan-meeting, on February 28 which he closed with a promise to fans that he would work hard during his service and return well to them.
