Ravi De VIXX is suspected of using illegal services to obtain military exemptions
Military service is compulsory for all Korean men under the age of thirty. It should be done by everyone, even celebrities.
However, depending on the state of their physical or mental health, some may become social workers and others are sometimes even given leave depending on the severity of their condition.
Since early January, police have been investigating a major brokerage organization for helping celebrities, athletes and children from wealthy families falsify their medical records in order to be exempted from military service.
It was allegedly admitted that a famous idol rapper, “A”, was exempted from military service because of her.
In addition, it was revealed that the brokerage organization used its client “A” to promote the business to others. A broker often told his clients: “‘A’ received public service thanks to me. »
Media reported that the rapper left a famous entertainment show in May last year, returned in September and signed up as a social worker in October.
According to the media, this rapper is actually Ravi by VIXX. Ravi left 1 Night 2 Days in May 2022 with the airing of the final episode and entered public service on October 27, 2022.
According to the media, it is shocking that Ravi is in public service as he has received a lot of love for his healthy young image through various entertainment programs and talk shows.
On January 12, media outlet Joy News 24 contacted Ravi’s agency Groullin, but received no response from him.
On the other hand, Mr. Goo, a former military official who is a key figure in alleged military service corruption, is known to have set up a military service affairs office in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, and made efforts to educate people on how to be exempted from military service will.
In particular, Mr. Goo is known to have used the technique of exemption or reduction of military service through the method of diagnosing epilepsy.
According to the investigation, Mr. Goo and Mr. Kim, another broker, also received fees ranging from tens of millions of won to 100 million won for military administration costs.
Prosecutors are now expanding their investigations as they believe about 70 people evaded military service through brokers like Mr. Goo and Mr. Kim.
