Jung Yong-hwa exits the military
He thanked his fans and expressed hope that he would return to his job as early as possible during a special fan event held at a community service center in Hwacheon, Gangwon.
Some 1,000 Korean and foreign fans from Asian countries such as China, Japan and the Philippines gathered to greet the singer.
“I feel both relieved and sad,” Jung said. “I was able to work harder in the military thanks to you fans who have been waiting for me.”
Jung finished nearly two years of military service at an Army unit in Chuncheon, Gangwon.
“I’d like to reward you with a music performance as soon as possible,” the 30-year-old said.
