MONSTA X have reunited, at least, for a brief time. Leader Shownu caught up with his other members ahead of his military discharge. All six members of the boy group got together for an awesome send-off for Minhyuk, who has enlisted for military service.

Minhyuk previously announced that he would enlist for military service on April 4, 2023. The MONSTA X singer soon enlisted fellow member Kihyun to help him cut his hair before his enlistment. On the day of his enlistment, Lee Minhyuk had a special treat for MONBEBEs.

Shownu Reunites With MONSTA X For Minhyuk’s Military Service Send-Off

The official MONSTA X Twitter account shared two photos of all six members of the group reunited for the send-off. The images confirm that Shownu took time from his own military service to join his fellow members.

Shownu is the first MONSTA X member to enlist in military service. He enlisted in July 2021, serving as a public service worker due to previous surgery for left eye retinal detachment. In contrast, Minhyuk will serve as an active-duty soldier after undergoing basic military training.

Although Minhyuk will be away for almost two years, he had several promotions before his military enlistment. He is currently the brand ambassador for NFL Korea 2023 Summer Collection. Lee Minhyuk also filmed new content for “Mon Must Go On,” a special series on the group’s official YouTube channel. The new episodes feature fellow members Joohoney and I.M.

In related news, fellow MONSTA X member Kihyun has joined the fixed panel of JTBC’s “Han Moon-chul’s Black Box Review” or “Hanvely.”

“It’s a new feeling to join Hanvely, which I’ve enjoyed,” Kihyun said of his latest project. “I’ll learn a lot and be careful through broadcasting so that I can make Korea safer.โ€

Shownu will be discharged from military service as a social worker on April 21, 2023. He is expected to resume promotions with MONSTA X soon after.
