After more than two years in the military since 2006, singer Kim Jong Kook more affectionally known as the “One Man” was released from service this morning. Sorely missed for his songs on stage and his appearances on variety shows, he was welcomed by legions of media and fans who had been waiting for his release for the past 26 months in military civil service.
Kim Jong Kook gave a quick interview to waiting reporters upon his release, “I feel really great now. I’m going to meet my parents first and hope to go on a trip with them.” He then expressed his thanks to his fans who had come to receive him, “I’m really thankful to everyone who has waited a long time for me, really thank you all for coming.” As for singer Jo Sung Mo who was released on the same day as him, “We are colleagues not rivals. I hope that we can present even better music together for fans in future.”
He was also asked about his opinion of Yoon Eun Hye by a concerned reporter
I have always been supportive of her. Seeing how successful she is now, I’m really very happy.
