Yang Yoseob’s full post is as follows:

January 24, 2019. It was a day when there were many people who went through a hard time emotionally like I did… in that large gymnasium at the Nonsan Training Center, I remember my parents wiping away their tears as they waved at me from far away, and I can also still clearly recall the sound of my many fans’ cheers and my emotions that were slightly heightened from being in an unfamiliar environment.

Over the course of one year, seven months, and seven days, there were many difficult moments, and there were also many happy moments. I cried, and I laughed; I felt depressed at times, and I also felt happy at others; I miss [the army], but I also feel relieved… it was a long experience that felt like a cool movie. The many people who belong in the credits of this cool movie were such great people to me. Thank you to the many people who helped me endure during this time, including my fans, who waited together with me for 20 full moons. I will repay you with great music and a slightly improved version of myself.

I was officially discharged from the military on August 30, 2020. Salute.
