It’s normal for soldiers enlisted last October to gain advancement on March 1st, 5 months after their enlistment, but military officials say that Rain’s been selected as an ultra warrior in a recruit training center, which is why he made the rank of private first class a month ahead of time (February 1st), contrary to other soldiers.

Rain has been selected as an ultra warrior after passing a test by doing more than 72 pushups and 82 sit-ups in two minutes, and by clocking less than 12m 30s in 3km sprint.
