Another K-pop star will leave us in order to fulfil his mandatory military service next week.
Word has it recently that Seungri (승리) will be enlisting as an active duty soldier next Monday (9th March 2020).
As reported by Yonhap News, sources close to the former BIGBANG member claimed that he will undergo a 5-week long training at the 6th Infantry Division in Cheorwon, Gangwon-do. Having said that, the news has not been confirmed by the Military Manpower Administration or the Ministry of Defence.
Prior to this, Seungri was spotted partying with his friends ahead of his pending enlistment. Several photos captured during the event circulated online, including the one that showed him posing with a salute gesture.
In the midst of investigation on several charges made against him – including prostitution and overseas gambling, Seungri had apparently received the notification on his enlistment on 4th February. As a result, the ongoing trial will be transferred to the military court system.
The “Strong Baby” jam-maker was originally set to enlist on 25th March 2019. However, the plan came to a halt in order to make room for his investigation of his involvement in the infamous scandal.
