Idol singer injured himself on purpose to avoid army?


An unnamed singer/actor, aged 26, has been caught red-handed for purposely injuring himself to avoid the Military Service Act in Korea.

On the 23rd, the Seoul Central District Prosecutors Office commenced with further investigation, and found that he was accused back in 2007 of intentionally avoiding his military service requirement.

The idol had purposely attempted to carry a heavy load by just using his left shoulder, which had an impact to his left hand causing some injuries.

The same thing was done with his right hand, which later caused him to miss dance practices and he was later involved in traffic accidents because of the painful symptoms stemming from his injuries when he drove his car.

He was then sent to the hospital for his two hands and left shoulder where he received a certificate of instability which was later submitted to the military in 2008, when he was exempted from doing his required service. Officials say that some sort of punishment will happen as a result of this abuse to escape the system.

Though his actual identity is unknown, some facts were revealed. In 2007, he debuted into a pop group, soon after following up with showbiz and partaking in a movie. The mysterious idol then continued with solo singing activities.

Any thoughts on who this may be?
