Meeting with media and fans in front of the special operations command in Jeungpyeong, North Chungcheong Province, he thanked his fans and his comrades for helping him finish his duty successfully. Around 400 Korean and foreign fans flocked to the county on the chilly autumn morning to congratulate and cheer for him.
"For the past one year and nine months, I've received so much support that I've been able to leave the military well and healthy," Lee, 30, said. "I will use the positive energy I've got from the command to focus on my career."
Lee made his debut as a singer in 2004 and has expanded his career into acting and variety shows. He enrolled in the military in February last year.

He's still considering a role in Hwayugi and I strongly suspect we'll get confirmation soon now that he's out. After a year of so many actors going into the military, I'm glad someone I like is finally discharged.
