This is the latest update to the 30-year-old actor’s medical condition after a series of unfortunate health problems.
Yoo Ah In was preparing for his enlistment and has repeatedly expressed that he wishes to complete South Korea’s mandatory enlistment requirements.
However, a shoulder injury that he has been recovering from resulted in his military service being postponed. He was told to come for a checkup in 2017 in order for his enlistment to be reviewed once again.
The actor postponed multiple projects and CF’s in order to fulfill the enlistment requirements but was told by the military that he would be unable to until medical officials cleared him.
