Following Seo In Guk's medical re-examination for his military re-enlistment back in April, it has been confirmed that the actor will be officially exempt from his military duties.
According to an official statement from Seo In Guk's agency, Jellyfish Entertainment, the actor underwent a more thorough medical re-evaluation on June 5, where he was diagnosed with osteochondritis dissecans (a joint disorder where cracks form in the cartilage and bone) in his left anklebone.
Due to this diagnosis, Seo In Guk was given a grade 5 ranking, which exempts him from his military duties due to his health. The actor initially enlisted back in March, but was sent home shortly after during training due to an injury.
At the time of writing, Jellyfish have stated that no further questions will be answered in regards to the situation until details are finalised over Seo In Guk's military service.
