Actor Song Joong Ki has officially been discharged from the military’s 2nd Infantry Division as of May 26th from Goseong in the Gangwon Province.
The actor was greeted by a plethora of fans and the media as he makes a transition from military life and back to a civilian.
He first started off with, “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.”
There, the media asked him which girl group gave him the most support during his time in the military. However, Song Joong Ki gave them an unprecedented answer and stated, “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.”
Song Joong Ki originally enlisted in the army on August 2013 and into active duty, rising to Sergeant during his 21-month in the military.
