On the same day (August 18), Shindong posted a photo of Choi Siwon saluting in his police uniform and included a screenshot of text messages he exchanged with Choi Siwon after his discharge.
In the messages, both parties are adorably excited, with Shindong writing, “Siwon!!! Congratulations!!!” and “You went through a lot!!!!”
Choi Siwon responded similarly, writing, “Hyung!!! I love you!!! Thank you!!!” Shindong then asked him how he was feeling and added, “This is a new start!!! Very very!!! It feels good!!!” Siwon answered, “I still can’t believe it. How long does this excitement last?”
Shindong began his own military service in 2015 and completed it the following year.
