Singer and actor Ok Taek-yeon’s story where he turned down TWICE’s visit while serving in the military is drawing keen attention.
When asked about the person he wanted to see the most during his service at his discharge ceremony held at Ilsan-dong-gu, Gyeonggi-do, Ok replied that he had wanted to see TWICE the most.
As for the reason, Ok Taek-yeon said, “I really wanted to see TWICE. They had decided to come, but since I was the assistant instructor, I didn’t have the time so I had had to refuse a lot. It was such a shame.”
“I don’t know if I’m able to meet them now since they are doing so well at the moment,” he said.
As this fact became known belatedly, netizens jokingly said, “I can hear the sobbing sound of all the guys in the army from here”, “But then you went to see them during your vacation…haha”,…
In fact, Ok Taek-yeon has boasted about his personal connections with TWICE during his vacation in December last year.
Meanwhile, Ok joined the military on September 4, 2017 and served as an assistant instructor at the Baekma boot camp for about 20 months.
He was a permanent resident of the United States, but he gave it up to join the military. Ok was later declared an alternative service due to his waist disc, but after surgery and treatment, he volunteered to join the military on September 4, 2017 and was cheered and appraised by many. In April, he received a commendation from the Military Manpower Administration for his sincere military service.
