Lee Seung Gi has finally returned!
On October 31 at 9 a.m. KST, Lee Seung Gi was formally discharged from the military at Jeungpyeong County in North Chungcheong Province, after completing his mandatory requirement as a male Korean citizen. 400 fans happily greeted the star, who thanked them for coming so far despite the cold weather.
Lee Seung Gi carried out his service as a member of the special forces, an experience he said he was thankful for. “At first I was very taken aback when I received my placement. I worried a lot, but…it was a very fun and grateful experience. It felt like I was learning how to find happiness even during extreme moments of suffering,” Lee Seung Gi revealed. “My time as a soldier has been something very precious to me.”
When asked what is the first thing he wants to do as a normal civilian, the singer replied, “I don’t really have anything in particular. From when I first received my discharge notice, to when I changed my status to reserve forces, to this very moment, it still doesn’t feel real. I don’t think my discharge will feel real until I return home and spend time with my parents.
Lee Seung Gi also promised fans that he would appear on broadcasts so much that they will become sick of seeing him on TV. “I think that I will be able to greet fans onscreen very soon. I will bring you enjoyment,” he stated. “I have a strong conviction about my activities after being discharged. I will spend a lot of time with my fans from now on.”
Welcome back Lee Seung Gi!
