Following news of actor Yoo Seung Ho’s discharge from the military at the beginning of next month, it has been confirmed that singer Se7en will also be returning to civilian life late next month on December 28.
Se7en first enlisted to begin his mandatory service on March 19 of last year, when he entered the 306 Reserve Battalion in Uijeongbu, which is located in Gyeonggi Province. The singer is currently stationed and serving at Pocheon’s 8th Infantry Division.
He was originally scheduled to be released on December 18. However, due to the entertainment soldier regulation controversy that surrounded a number of celebrity soldiers last year, Se7en spent 10 days in military jail, causing his discharge date to be pushed back to December 28.
Prior to the celebrity soldier scandal, it was made known that his exclusive contract with YG Entertainment had expired, but his name still remains on the agency’s list of artists.
