Pop star Kangta was discharged from the military on Friday upon completing South Korea's two-year mandatory military service.
The singer had served on the search squadron at city of Pocheon in the Gyeonggi Province since April 2008.
About 300 fans from all over Asia, including Korea, China and Japan, showed up to congratulate the pop star for fulfilling his military duties.
Kangta also thanked popular female idol group Girls' Generation, both managed by major talenthouse SM Entertainment, for paying a visit to him while he was in the army. "When the girls came, the whole unit went in such a frenzy that I couldn't ask them to come back a second time. I hope to be a help to the girls in the future once I make my comeback to the music scene."
Kangta, whose real name is Ahn Chil-hyun, made his debut in 1996 as the lead singer in the now-disbanded idol group H.O.T. He has pursued a solo career since 2001, releasing several albums in Asia as well as taking up acting in China.
