BTOB’s Chang­sub starts mil­i­tary ser­vice

The Korea Times - - PEOPLE -

Lee Chang-sub, a mem­ber of the seven-piece K-pop boy band BTOB, started his 21-month manda­tory mil­i­tary ser­vice Mon­day, tem­po­rar­ily leav­ing the band.

The 28-year-old up­loaded a photo of him­self in mil­i­tary cropped hair on his per­sonal In­sta­gram ac­count (@lee_c­s_btob) early Mon­day af­ter­noon, when he was en­listed.

“I will be back,” he said on the ac­count, adding the four-syl­la­ble ab­bre­vi­a­tion for “I love you now and in the fu­ture as I did in the past.”

He will un­der­take rudi­men­tary train­ing at the mil­i­tary boot camp be­fore of­fi­cially join­ing the armed forces.

“As he wants it to be a quiet event, the tim­ing and the lo­ca­tion will not be dis­closed,” the group’s man­age­ment agency, Cube En­ter­tain­ment, said.

He de­buted in 2012 as the main vo­cal­ist of BTOB and later ex­tended his ca­reer into mu­si­cals.

Last month, he re­leased his first solo al­bum, “Mark,” and threw his first solo con­cert.
