National Defense, "Rain's re-admittance isn't normal"

2013/08/07 | Permalink | Source

In the process of looking over celebrity qualifications, Rain's name has been brought up saying that he should serve his duties again. The National Defense claims, "There is a slight problem with the process but it's not enough to talk about putting him back in the army".

Politician Kim Gwang-jin brought up this topic on the 6th saying that certain celebrity soldiers didn't submit necessary papers to apply for the publicity roles.

A spokesperson for the National Defense claimed, "It's true there have been slight inadequate points in the process but it's not a violation of the military law. It's not discussable as serving military service again".

About missing papers, there was a difference in interpretation. ND says, "The papers Rain didn't submit are confirmation documents and a letter of recommendation. The publicity department claims these are not vital. However, the inspection department thought this wrong".

There was also voices of worry about the process of choosing celebrity soldiers spreading out to the demand of Rain serving duty again. "Rain has already served his time and was punished for his mistakes. Serving duty again is a matter of violation. He can be criticized for the process but claiming he serves duty again isn't appropriate".

The National Defense sentenced eight of the celebrity soldiers who violated the military law last month to the brig and confinement, while the celebrity solider policy was also abolished.
