Seo Tae-ji's fan club members, who wore white T-shirts and yellow handkerchiefs as uniforms, started to gather in the airport starting at 6:30 A.M.

It was reported on August 28 that Seo Tae-ji had asked his fans to stay calm while waiting for him in the airport through voicemail.

'We've been waiting for you,' 'Seo Tae-ji has finally come back,' 'God is greeting you also...' were among the many signs greating Seo Tae-ji at the airport. Some fans even brought the Korean national flag.

There were 240 policemen dispatched to the airport to maintain order.
