Jellyfish Responds To Report That Seo In Guk Used Medical Condition To Receive Exemption From Military Service

July 5, in an exclusive report, media outlet OSEN reported that actor Seo In Guk knew of his medical condition (osteochondral lesions) — which is grounds for exemption from military service — well ahead of time, but enlisted anyway. The report suggests that either Seo In Guk was extremely adamant about enlisting in the military, or he purposefully used the condition, which is treatable, to receive an exemption.

Seo In Guk pushed back military enlistment two times, once for the period of March 31, 2015 to May 29, 2015, and once for the period of October 24, 2016 to December 22, 2016. Both times, his official reason for delay was “osteochondral lesions,” which are isolated cartilage/bone lesions that can cause chronic ankle pain.
