JEUNGPYEONG, South Korea, Oct. 31 (Yonhap) -- South Korean actor-singer Lee Seung-gi finished his mandatory military conscription Tuesday.

Meeting with media and fans in front of the special operations command in Jeungpyeong, North Chungcheong Province, he thanked his fans and his comrades for helping him finish his duty successfully.

"For the past one year and nine months, I've received so much support that I've been able to leave the military well and healthy," Lee, 30, said. "I will use the positive energy I've got from the command to focus on my career."

Around 400 Korean and foreign fans flocked to the county on the chilly autumn morning to congratulate and cheer for him.

Lee made his debut as a singer in 2004 and has expanded his career into acting and variety shows.

He enrolled in the military in February last year.
