B1A4 Jinyoung's Military Discharge will Take Place on April 9

B1A4's Jinyoung has completed his duties as a public service worker, and he will be returning from the military today, April 9, after almost two years.

Jung Jinyoung enlisted in the military on June 20, 2019, when he entered the Nonsan Army Training Center in South Chungheong Province. He spent four weeks of basic military training at the site and proceeded with his mandatory military service as a public service worker.

Prior to his military enlistment, the B1A4 member was revealed to have suffered from a labrum tear in his right shoulder because of the injuries he got from performing and filming dramas.

Because of this, he received Grade 4 in the physical examination of Military Manpower Administration and was considered unfit for active duty.

Additionally, Korean media outlets reported that after his military discharge there's a high possibility that B1A4 Jinyoung will resume his solo activities starting with the new drama titled "Police Academy."

"Police Academy" is a romantic comedy-drama that will represent the growth of youth in a police academy.
