K-pop singer Jaejoong’s management company asked his fans Thursday to refrain from sending so many gifts and letters to the star, who is currently carrying out his mandatory military service in a remote division.

Jaejoong, one-third of the popular K-pop trio JYJ, enlisted on March 31 and was assigned to the 55th Bonghwa Division, where he is a member of the army band.

C-JeS Entertainment, while thanking the fans for being supportive of Jaejoong, pleaded for them to stop sending excessive amount of comfort boxes.

“Due to the stacking number of letters and parcels for Jaejoong, relevant institutions are suffering from heavy workload. This may unintentionally cause hardships for other soldiers and their families. We ask you to refrain from sending Jaejoong private mail or gifts.”

C-JeS pointed out that Jaejoong himself had asked in a videoed message prior to enlistment that he wishes his fans rather not send him anything, as he will deeply remember their love without the material returns.
