INFINITE Are The Kings Of Fan Service Even While They’re Away In The Military
INFINITE‘s Sunggyu, Sungyeol, and Dongwoo are currently serving their military duties and away from the group, but Koreans have been sharing some endearing encounters with these members, proving they are still the kings of “fan service”!
Sunggyu, who first enlisted in the army back in May 2018, was recently spotted at a cafe, dressed in his military uniform and rocking the style too. A 9-years-loyal fan was blessed to meet him in person and the story behind how she met her absolute bias is melting INSPIRITs’ hearts.

This fan shared pictures of her and Sunggyu on her Instagram and wrote, “Today was the best day of my life.” In the pictures, Sunggyu is spotted sweetly smiling in to the camera and even hugging the fan like he’s at a one-on-one fan meeting! INSPIRITs are touched by Sunggyu’s heartwarming actions, as described in the fan’s caption, like waiting by to meet the fan before he leaves.
I’ve been blessed after stanning them for 9 years, I’m so happy. I could drop dead right now. I love them so much. I was at this cafe a couple hours earlier, but I heard Sunggyu came by so I ran back. I almost passed out when I saw him in real life. I am so grateful for my teammates who let me know that he came. And for the maknae who told Sunggyu about me being his fan for 9 years… and for Sunggyu who waited for me after hearing that I’m on my way to see him T-T I honestly don’t mind dying now… Thank you so much Sunggyu, and sorry for making you wait. I love you. It sucks we couldn’t talk long, but I’m so blessed. Thank you for saying bye on your way out too. I seriously love you so much. Please don’t get hurt while in the military. I wish you the best of luck in finishing your service T-T I LOVE YOU!

Meanwhile, Sungyeol, who enlisted in the army in March 2019, is reaching out to his fans in handwritten letters. In this letter, tweeted by his fan, Sungyeol pointed out that he is receiving the letters fans are sending to him at the military base.
성열군이 여태 편지 받은 모든 인스피릿에게 답장하고 싶은데 시간이 넉넉치가 않아서.. 대부분 못받았지만.. 미안하다구 좀 전해달라고 했어요!

Sungyeol explained that he really wants to write back to all the INSPIRITs who are writing to him, but he can’t seem to find the time. Sungyeol’s heartfelt apology for not being able to respond to every single letter is making fans UWU at what a softie he is!
All the letters I’ve gotten from INSPIRITS so far… I want to write back to all of them, but I don’t have a lot of free time here. So most of them didn’t receive a response… Please tell them I’m so sorry.
Last, but not least, Dongwoo is also winning at fan service by being the most friendly neighborhood K-Pop star. Dongwoo, who left to serve his military duty in April 2019, was spotted out and about on his vacation. He then posed for pictures with a fan who recognized him and even hung around to engage in a casual, personal conversation about how he’s doing in the military!

The fan explained in the caption of his Instagram upload, “Dongwoo had the best manners ever… There is a reason he’s a globally beloved star!” According to the fan, Dongwoo happily agreed to snap a picture with his fan, posed for several until the fan got what he wanted, and didn’t mind that the fan shared it on social media!
What a superstar! This is K-Pop idol INFINITE’s Dongwoo. I ran into him on the street and asked for a picture – and he had the best manners ever. I asked, ‘Hi, I wouldn’t be able to grab a picture with you, right?’ but he happily agreed to pose with me. I asked if it would be okay to share online and he didn’t mind that either. The picture kept coming out blurry, so I asked him to pose multiple times but he was fine with that too. He thanked me and blessed me. There’s a reason he’s a globally beloved star! He told me he’s on vacation. We talked for a bit… I couldn’t buy him chicken, but I got to get him this banana milk drink. Good luck on the rest of your service, Dongwoo! Thank you!

These brief but invaluable moments that the fans have shared with INFINITE members are leaving the rest of INSPIRITs falling in love with the group all over again! Sunggyu, Sungyeol, and Dongwoo are scheduled to be released from the military all in 2020, and fans can’t wait for their return to the K-Pop scene.
