“AROHA! We have sent M-hyung off well. And we have now returned to Seoul.
Haha. I feel uneasy, and my heart is aching, but I feel at ease on the other hand because I was with him together until the end!
Please send lots of support for M-hyung so that he can return safely^^”ASTRO JinJin.

NO MJ in ASTRO May 2022 Comeback?
Finally, now that MJ is officially enlisting in the military, the main question is whether ASTRO will really make their comeback in May 2022 without him.
After all, the official comeback date for ASTRO is on May 16 next week. With MJ enlisting in the military yesterday, does it mean that ASTRO will perform their comeback stages next week without their main vocalist?
As of today, no official announcement is available from the ASTRO official agency, Fantagio. Therefore, the answer may be both yes and no. After all, seeing that some comeback stage videos are usually pre-recorded, chances are we will still be able to see MJ performing in some performances with his fellow ASTRO members.
However, there will still be performances in which ASTRO members need to perform live or pre-record on the same day. In this case, ASTRO would need to perform with 5 members for May 2022 comeback following MJ military enlistment date.
So, let’s wish a good military enlistment journey and experience for ASTRO MJ! Hope that he will return safely and healthily once he completes his duty.
