On January 24, Kim Hyun Joong wrote on his official homepage,
"It's been a long time. How are you?
I had been contemplating on what to say the last few days.
Enduring much pain and hardship, I have come to realize that I am such a weak person.
However, I was able to hold on thanks to my family and friends, and to everyone who has believed in me.
This is why I was thankful for each day.
Which makes me want to ask you all this question.
Is everyone doing well?
I would like to talk more face to face.
Thank you so much always."
Sincerely, Kim Hyun Joong
Meanwhile, the singer will be returning from the military on February 2, as his agency KeyEast confirmed his comeback to fans, "We ask for your welcoming support as Kim Hyun Joong will return to his fans after completing his military services."
Upon seeing the letter, netizens commented, "It's amazing how he still has fans," "Everything else aside, the real question is did he hit her? Or not? If so, do your parents hit you like that? A man hitting a woman is not love," "Just keep your mouth shut and never set foot again in the entertainment industry."
