JYJ, who got a physical check up in their mid-twenties, is drawing attention recently.
There was growing controversy over JYJ, since they delayed their physical check-up for 5 years when it is required to get a physical check up at 19 years old.
However, recording to Seoul Military Manpower Administration, JYJ delayed their check up for a valid reason.
On the 16th, military administration said, “The sayings about ‘entertainer favors’ is nonsense. They delayed their physical check up because of they often leaved the country since when they were 19 years old.”
He added, “If one stays in the country for more than 60 days, you get a notification for the physical check up. As far as I know, JYJ didn’t satisfy this rule.” (Translators note: He means JYJ never stayed more than 60 days in Korea since they were 19 years old.)
JYJ got their physical check up on the 14th. However, they announced they don’t have a plan to join the army this year.
I read in the original article by isplus, that Nikkan Sports from Japan requested this interview on phone and Military Administration explained what it says above.
