Mighty Mouth member SHORRY J will soon be left alone in the music scene without his partner Sang-chu.
An official from YMC Entertainment told the magazine in a short phone interview Wednesday that Sang-chu will begin his two-year mandatory military service as an active-duty soldier on October 30.
Sang-chu, whose real name is Lee Sang-chul, has been assigned to the 306th draft in the city of Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi Province, the same draft where actor Choung Kyung-ho has been serving his duty.
The "Super Hero" duo recently dropped a pop-electronica single titled "Broken [translated title]," and the officials said another mini-album is coming to hit the shelves next week, "Navigation," on September 19.
Known for singing a slew of hit songs including "Tok Tok" and "Energy," SHORRY J and Sang-chu have created a buzz upon releasing each album for collaborating with top musicians--Kim Bum-soo, Insooni, the Wonder Girls' Sun, singer-turned-actress Yoon Eun-hye--and composer Shinsadong Tiger.
