Military Manpower Administration Denies That They Are Investigating Yoo Ah Ins Military Exemption

The Daegu Military Manpower Administration has issued an official response about rumors that they were investigating Yoo Ah Ins military service exemption.

Last month, after multiple physical examinations, Yoo Ah In was deemed unfit for service as an active duty soldier and received an official exemption from mandatory military service.

On July 10, one media outlet began reporting that the Daegu Military Manpower Administration was conducting an investigation into the decision to exempt the actor from service. However, a source from the MMA refuted the rumors, stating, If there is doubt about exemption, then the rules state that we need to investigate. However, just because people say there is a need to investigate doesnt mean that there will be an investigation. This is a case that didnt need investigation from the beginning and followed all legal processes.

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.
