With his upcoming discharge date later this month, Super Junior’s Heechul expressed his wish for a quiet ceremony.
It’s been announced that Heechul will be discharged on August 30th. Although his official discharge date was the 31st, he is being discharged a day early because the 31st falls on a Saturday.
Heechul enlisted as a public service officer in September of 2011 rather than an active duty soldier due to his past, severe injuries from a serious car accident. At the time of his enlistment, about 400 fans had gathered to bid him farewell, so this has been raising questions about whether we’ll be seeing a familiar scene at his upcoming discharge event.
However, Heechul has expressed his wish for a quiet ceremony and he and his reps have decided on the direction of making this just a private event. The reason they say is because the idol considers serving as a duty that all Korean men should carry out, and doesn’t think it warrants a big and fussy ceremony to welcome him back.
Hopefully fans will be understanding and honor his wish for a smooth and quiet discharge!
