On April 16 around 8:00 a.m., Kangin appeared in front of the reporters after reporting his discharge from the service at the 56th division. Nearly 500 fans of Kangin came to the site to congratulate him.
Kangin saluted and said, “It hasn’t hit me yet. It was a meaningful time. I feel weird. I’ve never felt like this before. Rather than feeling free and easy, I feel strange. I’ve never thought I would have this kind of time again.”
Leeteuk, Eunhyuk, Ryeowook, Sungmin, and Kyuhyun also went to congratulate Kangin’s discharge. As Kangin appeared in front of them, Leeteuk welcomed him with a warm hug. Kangin said, “I know the schedules of all members. I thought they couldn’t come. I really appreciate that they came to see me.”
Super Junior members said, “We’ve waited for Kangin for so long. Kangin promised that he would come out stronger when he gets discharged from the service. He looks more manly now.” However, Kangin was careful to mention about his future plan, saying, “I haven’t planned what I’m going to do yet.”
