2PM's Wooyoung has been discharged from the military today.
Instead of his original February 28 discharge date, the K-Pop idol wrapped up his army duties due to the threat of Coronavirus disease. According to JYP Entertainment, Wooyoung - who's currently on leave - was granted early discharge instead of returning to service as part of the new anti-COVID-19 measures.
South Korea has been on high alert as they face a surge of Coronavirus cases in the country. Government agencies including the Ministry of National Defense are making a move to combat its spread.
