Just recently, ASTRO's agency Fantagio made an announcement regarding MJ. The ASTRO member enlisted in the military on the 9th of May. After the idol's training, MJ will start his mandatory military service as a member of the military band.


On the 31st of May, ASTRO's label Fantagio dropped a statement on the official fan cafe of the boy group. There, they asked fans to stop prank calling MJ's military base.

Fantagio's full announcement can be read as follows:

"Hello, this is Fantagio.

We'd like to thank all the fans who support ASTRO's MJ, who started his military service on May 9.

Recently, more and more people have been trying to make prank calls to MJ's military base. Unnecessary prank calls greatly interferes with MJ's training.

In addition, prank calls made several times are subject to punishment, and prank calls to military bases are subject to more severe punishment.

For MJ's peaceful military service, please refrain from making unnecessary prank calls, and please note that legal action may be taken if prank calls continue after this announcement.

We will continue to do our best in various ways to ensure MJ's smooth military service."

Although Arohas miss ASTRO's MJ, the K-Pop idol would have an easier time if his fans did not prank call his military base.
