1. [+316, -43] Do well ^^ We'll always support you

2. [+159, -27] And another leaves us ㅠㅠ

3. [+123, -18] I just came home from the fan meet. There wasn't one journalist there and the host was so great. It was a meaningful moment truly made for just Joong Ki oppa and his fans. It was upsetting to see him choke up every time the topic of the army was brought up...

4. [+19, -8] I lucked out the other day and saw Song Joong Ki at my mother's restaurant. He's such a cheerful person. Greeted her cheerfully and finished his bowl of rice without one grain left over. Even gave her an autograph ㅠ I never thought much of him because of the rumors calling him arrogant but I've totally changed my mind ㅠㅠ He seems like a great person

5. [+18, -12] It honestly can't be easy for him to enlist at a time when the army's image isn't at its best because of the celebrity soldier scandal. Looking forward to a great active duty service from him!
