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.

An idol for 10 years and actor for eight, Taecyeon is full of motivation right now. As hes already reached No. 1 as an idol, Taecyeon is ready to actively progress as an actor as well. Although he still has his military service in front of him, his determination is fierce and encompasses his desire to expand into the United States as well.

It was hard to act while completing my activities as a singer at the same time. I started acting at the peak of 2PMs popularity and activities. At the time, I didnt start acting because I wanted to – I was more tired then. Its not like that anymore. Now that I act because I want to do it, I feel a greater sense of responsibility.
