Song Seung-heon, Jang Hyeok Discharged from Military

Actors Song Seung-heon and Jang Hyeok were discharged from military service November 15.

The two made an appearance in front of their fans at their respective army divisions--Hwacheon and Cheolwon, both in Gangwon Province.

Some 200 reporters and 500 fans from Korea and abroad waited for Song since early morning. The actor's fans from Japan, Hong Kong and Thailand, who came to Korea in time for a fan meeting, waited for Song since 4 a.m. despite the snowy weather.

Song will hold large-scale fan meetings November 18-19 at the Olympic Park in Seoul to resume his acting career. The actor says he doesn't think he has been forgiven for his mistakes and promised to improve in the future.

Song had originally planned to hold a welcome party with his fans immediately after his discharge from the military but had to leave the venue because too many fans flocked to see him.

Meanwhile, Jang has decided to take some time off before resuming his acting career to carefully choose his next production.

Some 30 reporters and staff from his agency waited for Jang in Cheolwon since morning. Jang stayed mostly low-key during his military service. He walked all the way from his division to the checkpoint for an hour and a half because it snowed heavily.

Jang told reporters that he felt relieved and sad at the same time, and had cut his hair short again. He said he planned to implement new resolutions and appeared strongly determined to do his best. He explained he had realized the importance of acting in his life during his military service.

Both actors left their checkpoints with their agency staff and headed home to meet with their families.

Song will soon begin filming a new TV drama, while Jang has yet to choose his next production.
