October 2017 is really ending on a downer with the car accident loss of a top movie and drama leading man, but life goes on and it’s with a optimistic heart to welcome back a top star who has been diligently serving his mandatory military service for the past 22 months. Actor-singer-variety star Lee Seung Gi was discharged on the morning of October 31st, bright and early and also sooooooo long in coming I feel like I aged five years from when he enlisted to when he was released. By all accounts he’ll be doing tvN drama Hwayugi by the Hong Sisters and also lining up variety gigs, and knowing his hard working ethos will also start planning a music comeback. During military service he remained the boy-next-door every Korean ahjumma’s ideal of a son-in-law, serving with a smile and surfeit of positivity. Welcome back my beloved boy, I hope your smile can blow some of the dark clouds away.
