Joining the military last year and serving in the army as a PR assistant at Defense Agency for Public Information Services, Rain was named the 9th PR ambassador of Military Manpower Administration on April 10 at 9:00 a.m. at Seoul Regional Military Manpower Office.
A spokesperson for Military Manpower Administration said, “We named Rain a PR ambassador of Military Manpower Administration as we wished young people to model themselves after him and do their military service voluntarily.”
Kim Young Hoo, a director of Military Manpower Administration asked rain to let many young people know that it’s a truly proud thing to do their military service voluntarily.
At this, Rain said, “The role that I’ll be playing as a PR ambassador will be very marginal, but I’ll do my best to let many people know about Military Manpower Administration and create an atmosphere that people who sincerely do their military service are to be socially respected and privileged.”
On the day, Rain talked about his experiences in the military and answered questions asked by people who came to Seoul Regional Military Manpower Office for a physical examination for conscription. He also started his official activity as a PR ambassador by carrying out the physical examination for conscription. He’ll be discharged from the service on July 10 next year.
