The Daegu Military Manpower Administration has issued an official response about rumors that they were investigating Yoo Ah In’s 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 doesn’t mean that there will be an investigation. This is a case that didn’t need investigation from the beginning and followed all legal processes.”
Earlier this month, Yoo Ah In’s agency, UAA, announced that they would be taking legal action against malicious rumors about his military exemption.
