Taecyeon has completed his military service!

The 2PM singer and actor was discharged from the military on May 16, ending his time as a sergeant and active duty soldier.

He briefly greeted the press and fans awaiting him as he left the barracks saying he hadn't been able to sleep well due to nerves. He said: "This is the first time I'm standing in front of cameras in so long that I'm not sure what I look like right now".

He thanked his fans for waiting for him and greeting him as he left, and said he most wanted to see the other 2PM members now that he'd been discharged, with 2PM's Chansung even there to greet him.

He also thanked TWICE, choosing them as the girl group he missed most,  saying: "It's been difficult to see them because of scheduling. But they still sent me a video. I'm grateful"

Taecyeon left JYP Entertainment in July 2018 and signed with 51K while he was still in the military, so it's a whole new era now that he's out. We can't wait to see what he does next!
