Yoo Ah In will be undergoing a medical re-examination for the fourth time to see if he is fit to serve in the military for his mandatory service. It was recently revealed that the actor is suffering from a bone tumor.
The actor's agency, UAA stated: "On March 15, Yoo Ah In will be receiving his fourth round of re-examinations for his military enlistment."
Meanwhile, Yoo Ah In had released a statement on his health condition. He stated: "I was aware that male celebrities can be misunderstood of using their injury or health condition to avoid military enlistment. That is why I completed all my schedule as planned and didn't reveal detailed information. It will definitely be possible for me to complete my mandatory service if an abnormal growth of the tumor does not occur."
"My injury and the health condition that is currently creating controversies are my misfortune. It is not a tool for me to avoid military enlistment," he added.
"The fact that I have to ask for forgiveness to others for my misfortune struggles me but as an actor who grows with the public's love and attention, I decided to accept it as my responsibility. I will overcome the pain the controversy has caused and carry out the duty as a citizen. As a person with the power to influence society, I will do my best to complete the duty," he concluded.
