Reporting. South Korea’s navy sergeant Park Bo Gum has received an order to discharge from April 30, 2022, onwards. Over.
Hello, Bo Gum Welfare Department! The seventh season has passed, and I’m pleased to meet you again on this warm spring day. Thank you so much to everyone in the Bo Gum Welfare Department for becoming my forever friend in this vast world that brings me strength and expresses your endless love and support!
How have my forever friends been doing all this while?
As for me, I spent 20 months fulfilling all the things that I had vowed to do when I started my duties as a navy man. I used my downtime to exercise, read and attain certifications for skills, spending the time meaningfully. It is a pity to put an end to my life as a navy man as I had been able to entirely focus on myself and learn more about myself during this time where some days passed by slowly and others faster. More importantly, they were good times thanks to the gentlemen I met who respected and considerate each other.
I hope that you will be able to spend your days peacefully, smiling at the end of each day with a “Today was good.” or “It was great!”
Let’s be together again,
in the shining future.
— Park Bo Gum
