With so many celebrities facing problems in the army, and with others being criticized for enlisting as a public worker or a celebrity recruit instead of as a normal soldier, MBLAQ’s Lee Joon offered his own fresh opinion.
On the June 14 episode of KBS 2TV’s ‘Full House’, Lee Joon said, “In terms of my physical examination, my ranking is the special 1st rank. I want to enlist somewhere good”, meaning that he wished to enlist as a regular soldier due to his physical well being.
Often labeled as ‘Rain’s idol’ even though Rain is no longer a part of J.Tune Camp, the MBLAQ members suffer from the image that they’ll follow in his footsteps and enlist as a celebrity recruit, taking advantage of the perks and excessive breaks. However, his statement impressed many viewers, who encouraged his decision.
