Finally!!! The wait is over, two long year has come to an end. Couldn’t believe how the time flied away. I still remember the fans message on SNS when Hyun Joong enlisted – May 11, 2015. The million fans words were same, they said
“Hyun Joong we will wait for you, you understand? No matter how long it takes we will make sure to wait and when we meet once again after two years we’ll have so much to talk about”
Same way Hyun Joong said to the fans “Please wait for me”
Both kept their promise and met each other with mixed feeling on Feb 11, 2017.
Fans warm welcome
Sergeant Kim Hyun Joong completed his two year military service on Feb 11, 2017. More than 1500 fans from different countries gathered to give a warm welcome for Hyun Joong. Fans prepared surprise gifts like cake, flower garland, paper cranes, posters, banners and so on. Fans from different part of the world who weren’t able to fly made sure to participate in projects like rice wreath and so on. SK fans also prepared free shuttle bus to 30th division Gyeonggi-do’s Goyang city.
At 10.00AM KST Hyun Joong met the fans, greeted and had conversation with them – this was the moment for which we all were been waiting for. Fans encouraged him by chanting his name continuously. Toward the end Hyun Joong walked around by thanking his fans for coming long way to welcome him.
The fans made live streaming shared pics of Hyun Joong so that the international fans who all were been waiting without sleeping due to different time zone were able to see their star and enjoy.
Hyun Joong’s message
“Thank you for coming such a long way despite the cold. I felt a lot while in the army, and I was relieved of my duty feeling like it is time for me to begin a new, with the second half of my life. In truth, I’m still very worried and fearful about things, but in army, I thought of ways to combat what I’m going through and vowed that I would, so I hope that fans will trust me and watch over me.”

When I was watching all the clips from Kim Hyun Joong’s discharge event there was a scene were Hyun Joong was walking around so that both (HJ & Fans) can have a closer look, suddenly a fan fell down, he made sure the guards to take care of her. That was the lovely moment of the day, he always care for his fans, he notes whether all his fans are safe. The real hero.
