Eunhyuk, member of popular K-pop group Super Junior, was discharged from the military on Wednesday morning (12 July). He is the seventh member of the group to be discharged from the army, following Lee Teuk, Heechul, Kang-in, Yesung, Sungmin and Shindong.
According to AllKpop, around 1,000 fans, along with Super Junior members Lee Teuk, Yesung, Shindong and Donghae, gathered to welcome Eunhyuk back from completing his military service.
The 31-year-old singer said, “I feel both disappointed and relieved that it’s over. I am feeling a bit nervous because I haven’t stood in front of the camera in a long time. Thank you for waiting for me for the past two years. Sorry for making you worry during this time.”
He also said that receiving letters and presents from fans in the army was a great source of strength for him.
Known as one of the more emotional members of the group, Eunhyuk also shed tears in front of the fans as they chanted, “Don’t cry!”
It wasn’t just the fans in Korea that celebrated his return though, as the hashtag “WelcomeBackEunhyuk” started trending on Twitter in Singapore not long after his military discharge.
Fans tweeted and re-tweeted photos and videos of the singer leaving his army camp in Gangwon-do, along with messages saying they missed him very much.
Welcome back I really miss you so much ~ so happy that you are finally back #WelcomeBackEunhyuk
