Though Lee Joon Gi is still fulfilling his mandatory army service, the actor still managed to make his fans go wild – in Indonesia, of all places.

The corporal was invited to Indonesia for the 2011 Indonesia-Korea Week, and while normally, celebs in the army don’t make public appearances, Lee Joon Gi was able to appear as a representative of the Defense Media Agency.

The Indonesian government invited Lee Joon Gi, as well as other celebs, to the event in order to strengthen the ties between the national defense forces of Korea and Indonesia.

On the day Lee arrived, hundreds of local fans swarmed to catch a glimpse of the star at the airport, and gifted him with bouquets and presents. Several other stars, including Epik High’s Mithra Jin, Shinhwa’s Andy, Lee Dong Gun, Park Hyo Shin and Yoo Seung Chan, were also present, but Lee Joon Gi, whose film The King and the Clown and drama Time Between Dog and Wolf were major hits in Southeast Asia, was the clear winner in popularity.

The entertainers performed during the K-Pop Contest and the Hallyu Singer Performance on October 2, at the Jakarta Gandaria Mall. Since all the celebs-turned-military personnel had been in uniform for at least a year, their appearance in casual clothes was a huge deal for the many fans who gathered to see their favorite Korean stars.

Lee Joon Gi, in a fedora and layered military look, sang his hit songs, danced and rapped (triple threat!), with videos of his performance spreading through various fansites almost immediately.

Lee Joon Gi and the other officers also performed with the Indonesian celebrity corps on October 3.

Lucky Indonesian fans will also get to see Hyun Bin, as he plans to visit from October 5-7, as soon as Indonesia-Korea week wraps up.
