That was then:
One year ago today, our hearts were ripped out as we watched Jung JiHoon disappear through the gate of the Uijeongbu 306 Reserve Station to begin his mandatory two-year military duty to his country.
And though he was committed to doing the right thing and serving as a responsible South Korean man, his heart was ripped out as he left his family, his friends, his fans, his career, everything he’d ever known, and became the property of the ROK Armed Forces.

Hi, everyone..I have about one hour before enlisting in the Army. I’ll be back after doing what is expected of me. Thanks to your support for the past decade, I’ve been able to accomplish so much. Please always be healthy and happy, and I hope you’ll have a life filled with happiness. Taking a long look back over my life, a lot has happened. Many of you moved my hearts and I was able to cry and laugh.. I love you.. Thank you..)

Reporters : Rain! stand up, please! Rain: Hi, everyone.. Thank you for coming. Anyway, I apologize for any inconvenience this obtrusive farewell may cause you (against my will) And.. I’ll be back after doing the right thing (as a soldier). Thank you. Reporters : Rain! take your cap off and raise your hand in salute, please!!! Rain: Thank you for coming, and thank you for the love many of you have given me over the past decade. See you later.)

This is NOW:
Here we are on October 11, 2012 with a handsome corporal, accomplished super-soldier, and military DJ that we can be proud of. Only nine months to go before we’re back in a downpour! Congratulations, Jung JiHoon/Rain, on one full year of military service, and a pretty stellar year at that.
You tackled the military the way you’ve always tackled life… and won. ^@@^
Rain’s management and his hyung Gori share their excitement at Rain having a full year under his belt today!
