Get ready to say bye to Eric
Although we’ve been hearing for a while about all the Shinhwa guys’ plans to enlist this year, Eric is the first to go. As you may know, Eric used to live in the United States, attending high school (I believe) in Santa Monica. As Shinhwa took off in the late 1990s and his career along with it, Eric gave up his U.S. citizenship, which makes him subject to mandatory Korean military enlistment.
However, given an injury sustained on the set of MBC’s drama Wolf in 2006, Eric will be assigned to a desk job. The drama had been cancelled due to an accident in which a stunt went awry and a stunt car crashed. He injured his ankle and hip and spent a month in the hospital in recovery.
No doubt his Shinhwa brethren will be following shortly. After ten years together, what will the entertainment landscape be without the Shinhwa boys? Er, men? Er, man-boys?
