SHINee members Key and Minho will bid farewell temporarily to fans as they are planning to enter the military for their 21-month mandatory service early this year.

SM Entertainment confirmed the news, stating that their artists are expected to enlist in the first half of this year.

Although the dates have not yet been decided, Key will most likely begin in March while Minho will follow at the same time. Both K-Pop idols are born in 1991 therefore they must enlist by the end of this year.
