To finally fulfill my mandatory military duty at this age, I will have to leave suddenly. I wanted to go earlier. However, I’m happy because I can finally relieve some of that burden. The saddest part that really worries me is the fact that I will have to leave without saying goodbye. My heart feels a lot of pain… The fact that I have been able to enjoy this celebrity life for almost 10 years is mainly thanks to the Lights. In this irregular life, the fact that I was able to feel the most normal feelings of happiness, sadness, and other things is thanks to the special memories I was able to create with all of you. You were with me for a third of my life all the time cheering me up. Thank you sincerely for your support. It was an honor. Now I plan to start the third chapter of my life. To my members, family members,
