My Thoughts

I was happy when I saw that a lot of fans were present to send him off. He had a difficult time so far and its best that he enlists for now. Soon, everyone will forget about that stupid college admission controversy.

I am glad that he knows fans still have his back. The photos say it all. A special thanks to all the fans who showed up in the cold weather to show their love for him.

We will wait for you oppa~ come back safely!
