The idol has been serving as a military police officer since October of 2015. Just a couple days ago, fellow member Eunhyuk was also discharged from his mandatory service, and the member was present this day to welcome Donghae back, along with numerous fans of Super Junior, or E.L.Fs, from all around the world! Fans who weren't present at the event took to Twitter to trend #WelcomeBackDonghae worldwide, landing the hashtag at #1!
He told the press and fans present, "I was very nervous, and got little to no sleep. I wanted to greet my fans first and foremost... I feel so happy, and I will go out into society and show you all my best self."
Super Junior's Siwon, who enlisted alongside Donghae and Eunhyuk in 2015, will be discharged from his military police officer duties this coming August 18. Super Junior are gearing up for their comeback as 7-members this October, while Donghae and Eunhyuk will be meeting with fans for the first time since their return on July 23 through a Super Junior D&E fanmeeting.
