Although it was said back when the singer was enlisting that he would serve as a rifleman, aka a regular soldier with no celebrity privileges, his agency YG Entertainment later remarked that there is a high possibility that Se7en’s position may be changed since the military had been showing interest in bringing him on board the promotional department for the military. Soon after his basic training, a statement was released revealing that Se7en’s position had been changed.
However, it is now being reported that his position wasn’t really ‘changed’ as Se7en had applied to be a celebrity recruit from the very beginning.
In a phone call with Ajoo Economy, a rep from the Ministry of Defense said, "Even before he started his 4-week basic training, he applied to be a celebrity soldier. He was being reviewed while he was undergoing his basic training and was approved and confirmed as a celebrity soldier," revealing said that Se7en had become a celebrity soldier as soon as his basic training ended.
This piece of information is being met with more disappointment from the public, since at first, they had believed that Se7en had been switched from a regular recruit to a celebrity recruit only because of the military’s decision, only to now learn that the singer himself had applied from the very beginning to become a celebrity recruit.
