On August 27th, Park Yoochun – actor and singer of group JYJ – has officially departed to the military training camp, leaving fans with a heartfelt letter.
“Hello. This is Yoochun.
When this letter gets published, I’ll be in training camp, right? Um… Do you mind if I spoke to you in banmal (casually/casual language)? We have known each other for a long time~ ^^
Um. Before entering the training camp, I didn’t have put a lot of thought at first but during my pictorial interviews, it finally hit me ‘I’m going to the army, I’m not going to be working for awhile… I’ve never gone on such a long break from work this long…I’ve already known for awhile that I would be fulfilling my military service at this time and even though it’s time, it hasn’t hit me yet. I don’t want any regrets before I go. A lot of fans have asked me what I regret the most before I enlist, but I want to do the opposite and think of the things I’m grateful for rather than the things I regret because you can’t go back to the pass and fix them. I’m very thankful for all the love I’ve received, and to be happy through my work. Thank you so much ^^
I’m not one to say a lot because I’m not great at expressing myself, but I wanted to say that my heart has always been aware. Thank you so much.
Now, I’m going to try and answer some of your questions. I chose a few questions that were sent to me. What if I didn’t become a celebrity? I would have become a lyricist or maybe a composer..? Um.. Yes, I think so. A lot of you asked me what kind of food I’d miss while I’m in training camp, and Jaejoong tells me whatever you eat there is all delicious. I don’t think there’s a certain dish I’ll miss while I’m in camp. Some have asked me what kind of work I’ll be working on after I’m done.. I saw Kyung Gu hyung some time ago and I told him I wanted to shoot a film with him when I get back. I want to work with him because he’s an actor I can really learn a lot from, and he’s always been warm and kind to me. The person I will miss the most is my father. As I became an adult with more responsibilities, I continued to miss him all this time because I wanted to see him and ask him questions, but he isn’t there. The fans homework while I’m away is to be healthy and happiness! I want to learn Chinese and read a lot of books.
Now, I’ve answered enough questions right..? Our Jaejoong hyung.. He said he wanted to ask for a leave and see my face before I go, but eventually just talked over the phone. I want to say that I’m proud of hyung, and Junsu, a friend and a member, I know you’ll be lonely but stay strong and fighting.
To our fans, thank you so much for your support, I’ll return safely. It was great seeing you all yesterday before my enlistment and I was filled with a sense of calm and anticipation. I’m looking forward to it because I will be able to meet new people and experience new things. Although we won’t be able to see each other for awhile, I hope we’ll be able to spend this time apart nicely and meet each other more mature. Goodbye~~~~~~~~~!!!! ^^”
