PENTAGON‘s Jinho will be the first member of the group to enlist in the military.
According to an exclusive report from SPOTV, Jinho will be enlisting in the military on May 11, the same day as his labelmates from BTOB in Sungjae and Hyunsik. He will be enlisting quietly with no separate events, and undergo his basic 4 week mandatory military training.
Due to Jinho’s enlistment, PENTAGON will reorganize their team lineup to 7 members. Member Yanan has been away from the group for nearly 2 years due to health issues. PENTAGON will continue their Road to Kingdom appearance as 7 members, starting from the third round.
During the recording for the second round of Road to Kingdom, the PENTAGON members also shared their love for Jinho and his upcoming enlistment.
We have been able to hold out well because of [Jinho]. We will be waiting for you to come back just like how you are now.
Cube Entertainment has since confirmed the report.
Jinho will be enlisting in active duty on May 11. He wanted a quiet enlistment, so we will not share the location or time.
