Minimalist posters: of a fangirl
Kim Jongwoon, I have been dreading this day so much since it was announced you were going to the army around this time. I haven’t cried yet but I know I will when I know you’ve gone off to your four weeks of training. I’m going to miss your voice so much, along with your quirks and your sassyness that you give to the fans at Mobit. I’m going to miss waking up to your selcas and random pictures of your dogs dressed up in costumes. But two years isn’t that long, right? And you’ll do well. I’m proud of everything you have accomplished and so is every other ELF. Don’t worry about things people say. You have come so far. This time will go fast. Come back safely, Yesung.
[soompi article]130506 Yesung’s Faithful Fans Shed Bucket of Tears at Send-Off Location:
The day Super Junior fans have dreaded has finally arrived.
May 6 marks the day when Yesung will start his military service. He previously mentioned through his agency that he wants to quietly leave for duty, but his fans still decided to go all the way to Jeolla Province to take a glimpse of their beloved celebrity and maybe send him off.
His fans represented many different countries, but all wrote messages in Korean varying from “Yesung, I’ll be here,” “I love you, I’ll wait,” “Oppa, I’ll wait for you.”
Quite a few Japanese fans bought airplane tickets and flew to Korea just for this occasion. The fans vary by age. There’s an ahjumma fan who brought her young child and there were high school students. One high school Japanese fan shared, “I came to Korea today to see Yesung. I’ll love him forever.”

Even though the fans waited for some time, Yesung kept his promise and entered the training base without greeting the fans.
After four weeks of basic military training at the 35th division in Jeolla Province, Yesung will start his service as a public officer.
Until then, Yesung. Take care.
