Actor Song Joong Ki is receiving much attention from the media following his discharge from the military today, May 26.
During his appearance before reporters and fans at his discharge ceremony, the actor was asked which girl group gave him the most strength while in the army.
Song Joong Ki responded, “My seniors told me that this question would be asked no matter what. I thought about it a lot and I don’t know girl groups very well. For me, Lee Kwang Soo was the biggest strength,” expressing his close friendship with the actor.
He jokingly explained, “I saw him so much on ‘Running Man’ that he gave me the most strength,” before adding on, “Lee Kwang Soo came to visit me once. He came despite having a busy schedule.”
Song Joong Ki also revealed what else provided him with strength while serving: “I like baseball, so I watched [baseball games] regularly. Hanhwa, the team I support, had good results, so that also gave me strength too.”
Meanwhile, the actor has returned to civilian life after enlisting in August of 2013. He is preparing to return to the small screen with the KBS drama “The Descendant of the Sun.”
