‘The Package’ actor and CNBLUE member Jung Yong-hwa discharged from military service

K-pop boy band CNBLUE member Jung Yong-hwa was discharged from the military Sunday after completing nearly two years of mandatory military service.

Jung Yong-hwa finished 20 months of military service at an Army unit in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province. He began his compulsory service on March 5, 2018.

The singer-actor was welcomed by an estimated 1,000 fans from various Asian countries like China, Japan, and the Philippines who had gathered in Hwacheon, Gangwon Province to celebrate his return with a special fan event.

Jung Yong-hwa, who was obviously nervous about speaking before a large crowd for the first time in almost two years, thanked his fans and expressed his desire to return to his job and reward his fans with a music performance as soon as possible.

Although Jung Yong-hwa is best known as the leader of CNBLUE, he is also an actor who has five dramas under his belt. He made his television debut 10 years ago in You’re Beautiful (2009), and has since starred in Heartstrings (2011), Marry Him If You Dare (2013), The Three Musketeers (2014) and most recently, The Package (2017).
