Lee Joon’s Agency Reveals Detailed Response To Recent Reports & Plans For Legal Action


Lee Joon’s agency Prain TPC has shared a more detailed response to recent false reports.

The agency revealed that they visited his base on February 13 and once again confirmed that the reports are all false. “Lee Joon has not self-harmed his wrist or entered the ‘Green Camp’ program.”

The statement continues, “As a result of these false reports, we felt the need to share Lee Joon’s exact situation. It has not been revealed before, but Lee Joon has had panic disorder symptoms during his acting career. It was difficult around the time that he enlisted, but he voluntarily enlisted due to his strong personal will to overcome it. With that mindset, he worked to overcome his disorder with a positive manner, receiving a certificate of excellence for completing basic military training in first place.”

However, despite his will, the symptoms recently worsened, and through the active support of his army base, he is carrying out both treatment and his military duties.”

Prain TPC explains, “It is not appropriate to reveal personal matters, especially the illness of a soldier on duty, but we are sharing this to please request for false news to not be reported anymore. It is also a response for fans who were shocked by the rumors and wanted to know about Lee Joon’s exact situation.”

As you may be aware, mental disorders can be worsened by the media and public. Lee Joon was very hurt by the false reports, and his doctor said that it could affect his treatment.”

Lee Joon is currently working hard to fulfill all his duties as a soldier. We request that reports related to this matter will be refrained from being published after today so that Lee Joon can recover well and so that his family and fans will not longer be hurt. If necessary, we plan on taking appropriate legal action on the false reports and additional reports and comments in the future that can harm Lee Joon’s military life and recovery.”

Thank you for worrying. We hope you have a good [Lunar New Year] holiday,” the statement concludes.

Although anxiety and depression often go hand in hand, they're two different diseases with different symptoms and this kind of false reporting is so fucking damaging to people with both illnesses.

At least he's getting treatment for his anxiety, it's difficult to overcome with willpower and exposure alone. And I hope his doctors are fucking competent. I don't have much trust in Korean doctors re: mental health

I agree, I really hope he's getting proper treatment.

Poor Joonie. He's been open about his mental health in the past, so if I hadn't read the news after it had already been denied, I would have believed it. I'd hoped it was a completely false report, but it seems he has been having a hard time recently. I hope he's getting enough support and doesn't push through with active duty if it's actively worsening his symptoms

I don't rly know what to think but I hope he's okay. He's talked about this stuff a bit before, the bipolar and insomnia and stuff. I just... rly hope he's okay. Heard so many horror stories about the SK military when it comes to stuff like this.

I just got diagnosed bipolar today so lmao praying for us.

the more i read into this story, the more i think about that one story regarding han hyo joo's brother [TW]bullying someone in the military to the point of the victim committing suicide.

i'm sorry about the diagnosis, doll. i couldn't help but think of my diagnosis to PTSD & Depression back in October of last year. it sucks to hear it, but you'll be glad to finally know that you have been officially diagnosed and know what to do about it.

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope you're able to get the help you need, and at your own pace.
