The last thing he posted on Instagram before entering military service a year ago was a photo of him with his dog.
And now that he's done with it, it became quickly apparent that Korean star Lee Min Ho missed his adorable pet the most.
The first two snaps he shared after finishing his year-long military service was a shot of the gifts fans sent in to welcome him back to civilian life, and a selfie with his puppy.
Both were liked more than 3.5 million times, proving just how much his followers were looking forward to his social media comeback.
Lee is best known to Filipino fans for his role as Gu Jun Pyo in the hit series "Boys Over Flowers" and "City Hunter." He has been in the country a number of times because of endorsement deals.
He finished his military service a couple of days ago. He entered a training camp in April 2018.
Military service is mandatory for every South Korean man between the age of 18 and 35.
They are required to perform two years' military service, with the rationale being the continued threat from North Korea.
