Super Junior's Heechul commended upon discharge from the army + video

By JONATHAN HICAP, Manila Bulletin
Super Junior member Heechul was discharged from the army this morning and received a commendation for his exemplary service in the last two years.
Heechul, who served as public service worker, was discharged at about 9 a.m. in Seongdong, Seoul.
Before this, he received an award from the Seongdong District Office where he served. He was cited for his diligent work including his being a DJ for military's internet radio program "Radio You Can See-A Place to Rest."
He started working as a radio program DJ in January last year.
Heechul enlisted in the army on Sept. 1, 2011 and after four weeks of basic military training, he reported to the Seongdong office.

He served as a public service worker due  to his physical condition. In 2006, Heechul was involved in a car accident that fractured his leg. For this, he underwent major surgery and physical therapy.
The singer and actor served for 23 months at the Seongdong District Office.
Fans and the media waited for Heechul to emerge from the district office. After receiving his award, Heechul greeted the fans who were waiting outside the building and proudly showed his certificate of commendation.
It was reported that there are offers for Heechul to appear in variety shows and Korean dramas. These offers will be reviewed and a decision will be made later on.
With his discharge from the army, fans are hoping to see Heechul perform in Super Junior's "Super Show 5" world tour.
Heechul was the second member of Super Junior after Kangin to enlist in the military. In October last year, Super Junior's leader Leeteuk started serving in the army.
