Fans of VIXX, Starlights, had to say goodbye to the boy group's third member to enlist in the military on July 6, 2020. Ken announced his enlistment through a heartfelt letter, saying that he applied to the military band and passed the exam.
It surprised the fans since the announcement of the exact date was sudden, but Ken assured them he would work hard in serving the country while thinking of the memories he made with them.
As he wished Starlights to continue loving him in the future, the K-pop idol indeed received heartwarming messages following his discharge.

Prior to the military enlistments, all participants have to cut their hair as part of the military prerequisites. Ken shared the first look of his hair on July 2, 2020 – a few days before his enlistment.
