Kim Jae-joong of JYJ said he was worried about being forgotten during the two-year hiatus necessitated by his mandatory military service, in a recent interview with local fashion magazine.

“The worry about being forgotten -- that was the biggest worry,” he told @star1. “So I wanted to work more and more. The military service is mandatory. But I couldn’t help worrying about the career break.”

Asked about his thoughts on the reactions from fans that he looks better with the short hair he had during his military service, Kim said, “I often heard that (my handsome looks are) all because of my hairstyle. But please don’t get me wrong. I am a man who looks good also with short hair.”

Kim enlisted in the Army in March 2015 and was discharged in December 2016.

He is currently filming KBS drama “Man Hole” alongside actress Uee. The drama series is set to air in August.
