Supernova member Sung-je entered military boot camp in Nonsan, South Chungcheong Province, on Thursday afternoon.
After finishing basic military training for four weeks, he will serve in the military for about two years, working in a special PR unit for the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency.
As Supernova has been active mostly in Japan, about 1,000 of his fans visited Nonsan to see him off. The singer entered the camp after having a brief fan meeting.
Sung-je is the second member of Supernova to join the Army. Yun-hak, the group leader, finished his military service in 2013. Without Sung-je, the boy group returns to five members.
Supernova debuted in 2007 in Korea, and chose Japan as their target market, releasing many albums.
