Shindong to step down from his 6-year DJing on Shimshimtapa



Super Junior Shindong announces his decision to step down from his 6-year DJ role in MBC Radio 'Shindong's ShimShimTapa'.

The reasons for his departure are due to the upcoming military enlistment and Super Junior's new album coming this second half of the year. On March 31, Shindong received the enlistment notice from the Military Manpower Administration (MMA)  for active duty but postponed it because of entertainment activities. However, according to SM, Shindong is going to enlist later this year.

Shindong is going to have his last radio broadcast for 'Shimshimtapa' on July 6. Fans and loyal listeners of his radio program express sadness over the news and commented, "I won't hear Shindong's lively DJing anymore.","I'm used to his funny stories which I'm fond of listening every midnight.","I will miss you Shindong oppa!","This is sad but all the best for you."

In regards to this, it has been reported that MNET's  Superstar K4 finalist and singer Jung Joon Young has been positively considering to replace Shindong's spot as the new DJ.
