Andy Lee Starts Military Service


Singer Andy Lee entered the military Monday, becoming the first member of popular six-member boy group Shinhwa to start the two-year mandatory military service.

Before joining the military camp in Nonsan, South Chungcheong Province, Andy whose real name is Lee Sun-ho told reporters that he will try his best to do his military service well and that he misses all the members of Shinhwa.

More than 200 Korean, Japanese and Chinese fans gathered at the military camp to see him off. "I tried not to weep. But I'm so moved by your heartwarming support," he told his fans.

He abandoned his Green Card in 2003 to join the army.

Andy, 29, has branched out to acting in TV dramas and appeared on several variety shows. After setting up his own entertainment company ND (New Dream) Entertainment in 2007, he introduced two-member boy band "Jumper" last year.

The singer recently toured Asia after releasing his second solo album "Single Man," performing in Taipei, Tokyo and Shanghai.
Andy also released his digital single "One Love" Monday.

그룹 신화의 앤디 (본명 이선호ㆍ29)가 11일 신화 멤버로는 처음으로 논산 육군훈련소로 현역 입대했다.

입대 직전 앤디는 기자들과 만나 군복무를 충실히 마치기 위해 최선을 다할 것이라면서 신화의 모든 멤버들이 그립다고 말했다.

이날 훈련소에는 그를 배웅하기 위해 200명 이상의 한국, 일본, 중국 팬들이 모였다. 그는 ``울지 않으려고 하지만 뜨거운 성원에 깊은 감명을 받았다''고 밝혔다.

앤디는 지난 2003년 군 입대를 위해 영주권을 포기한 바 있다.

앤디는 TV 드라마와 여러 예능프로그램에 출연하는 등 다양한 활동을 해왔다. 2007년 자신의 기획사를 설립한 앤디는 지난해 `점프'라는 2인조 남성그룹을 데뷔시켰다.

앤디는 자신의 두번째 싱글 앨범을 발표한 뒤 타이페이, 도쿄, 상하이 등 아시아 투어를 진행해왔다.
