On Tuesday (26th May) morning, the actor held a discharge ceremony in front of the members of press and expressed that he is grateful for everyone who came all the way to greet him.

Upon his discharge, he said:

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen so many cameras. Thank you for coming all this way. I don’t know if I’ve caused an inconvenience. I’m greeting you after such a long time, I am Sergeant Song Joong Ki.

It was reported that Joong Ki was moved to tears upon seeing a huge group of fans waiting for him.

He said:

My fans provided me with the most strength during my military service. Speaking to the fans is making me choke up. Thank you very much. I think the only way to repay the love of my fans is to show a better side (of myself) from now on.

However, this isn’t first public sighting of Joong Ki as he previously took one of his official vacation days to support his former “Running Man” cast mate Lee Kwang Soo at his sister’s wedding.

When he was asked which girl group gave him the most support during his time in the military, the actor, whom, to their surprise, answered:


My seniors warned me I would get this question. I was thinking about it a lot and I don’t know girl groups well. To me, Lee Kwang Soo was the one who gave me the most strength. I saw him so often on “Running Man” that he naturally became my greatest strength.

It has already been confirmed that Joong Ki will make his first comeback drama role through KBS2’s “Descendents of the Sun”. In fact, Korean media outlet reported that he has already received multiple film offers and advertising love calls.
