Our BANA hearts are aching right now as B1A4's leader Jung Jinyoung shocked fans with the announcement of his enlistment date. On Wednesday, LINK8 Entertainment unveiled the idol-actor's schedule to officially set foot on the military base.

"[Jinyoung] has received his draft notice from the Military Manpower Administration. He will be entering a recruit training center on June 20," the agency stated.

Jinyoung will compulsory serve the country as a public service worker upon learning military basics. He was born in November of 1991; hence, he has been expected to temporarily leave soon.

Since he had previously suffered from a shoulder injury, which he acquired while filming for dramas and other performances, he reportedly received Grade 4 by the physical test required by the Military Manpower Administration, and he was reckoned as unfit to do active duties.

Further, the agency said that Jinyoung wishes to enlist quietly.

There hasn't been any talk if he will be holding a farewell fan-meet ahead of his enlistment date. Nevertheless, the idol-actor assured his fans that he will do good and asked them not to worry about him in a lengthy heartfelt message he posted on his fan café.

The full letter read:

"Hello. This is Jinyoung.

It's got really hot, right? Are you all healthy and well? You know that I'm always looking at what you tell me, right? Thank you for always supporting me.

I received my draft notice earlier today, and I'll be enlisting soon. I think you will be very surprised and worried. Still, I wanted to tell my fans directly first. I've been so grateful for all the undeserved love you've shown me. I wanted to show you better sides of myself more before I enlist, but it's a shame that my health didn't allow it. Whenever I saw the words of my fans who were waiting for me to do many things, I felt so sad and sorry.

You know what I always say, right? Let's meet a lot for a long, long time. I'll be leaving your side for a little while, but let's be together for even longer than we have so far.

Don't worry too much. I'm sorry for worrying you. Let's meet when we're even happier. Everyone, promise that you'll bravely eat a lot of delicious things and be well. I'll definitely do that as well. Let's be together for a long, long time while dreaming of even more things together.

I'll become someone who always shows better sides of myself. Let's meet again. Thank you!"
