Alien Company shared the following statement:

“Hello. This is Alien Company. We would like to inform you about Kim Woo Seok’s transfer to additional military service. Kim Woo Seok, who enlisted as an active-duty soldier in the Army in April 2023, faithfully carried out his military service. However, he suffered from radiculopathy due to a lumbar disc herniation he previously suffered, and continued to receive treatment even during his military service. However, his condition did not improve, and his condition worsened to the point where he was unable to participate in daily life and training. After going through a review process in accordance with military regulations, he was deemed unfit for active duty and was eventually transferred to a social service officer during his active service period. Kim Woo Seok regrets not being able to complete his military service in good health, and plans to do his best for the rest of his military service as soon as he is notified of his military service institution and enlistment date. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this sudden news. We will focus on Kim Woo Seok’s treatment and rehabilitation and do our best so that he can continue his acting career in the future.”
