he can do that? is he not under investigation??

As much I want him gone, this also ain’t it. He needs to go down in flames first.

Looks like someone's trying to stay out of prison!

I mean, I know it's more nuanced than that, but to have the date of your enlistment coming up so near to the investigation period is highly suspect. As usual, YG and family have no tact or PR common sense.

Also, he shouldn't be allowed to do this, especially when he's still under investigation.

For real...why do I feel like by the time he gets out the gov't won't care anymore
modestgoddess79 8th-Mar-2019 04:22 am (UTC)
How about we let the investigaton conclude before we skip town
xlovexlessxtyx 8th-Mar-2019 04:22 am (UTC)
I’m shocked it’s not happening sooner tbh.
rainstormraider 8th-Mar-2019 04:26 am (UTC)
Can't they continue the investigation while he is in the ROK?

Also, doesn't the ROK have a code of conduct he's already breaching?
pseudo_shigure 8th-Mar-2019 05:03 am (UTC)
lol. no.

rosevael 8th-Mar-2019 05:35 am (UTC)
He’s going to get away with it isn’t he

Y'all, it's not like being in the military is emigrating, he can still be investigated and prosecuted. This enlistment has been pending a long time. If it gets too deep the military can furlough him to jail. Serving doesn't mean he can't be nailed to the wall for civilian crimes.

I'm not saying YG and Seungri aren't sketchy, and they aren't really truly grateful for this timing, or that maybe army isn't sometimes a get-out-of-jail-free card in jail, but we knew about this enlistment months ago. It's no surprise.

Edit: do people really not get this? He's not leaving Korea, and generally the military can be stricter on conduct than civilian life. Authorities will be able to find him, and likely military won't have a reason to shield him. He can be investigate, he can be prosecuted, he can be hung out to dry while serving. It's not actually a get-out-of-jail card for all crimes.

Can't spreak to corruption though there is no reason to assume it's better in military than civilian life.

I agree with you. All artist born in 1990 are due this year I think with the new rules about when one should enlist.
tungatunga 8th-Mar-2019 07:09 pm (UTC)
Say it louder, I'm honestly surprised, that people act like he is running from jail time. If he ends up officially charged, he will be kicked out right into welcoming arms of civilian prosecutors.
benihime99 8th-Mar-2019 06:02 am (UTC)
Can he enlist during an ongoing investigation? What about trial?
Tha army isn't a free out of jail card

yes he can! he can still get prosecuted etc. even when he has enlisted
the army has to make him "free" to go to the investigation/hearings etc. (basically escort him back and forth)
i'm not sure how he can serve and be in jail but i'm pretty sure they have a law for that (maybe go after his enlistment or maybe combine them, like do the duties when in jail?)
benihime99 8th-Mar-2019 12:48 pm (UTC)
ok that's good to know
aures 8th-Mar-2019 12:50 pm (UTC)
i just hope he will get punished though, for some reason i can see him enlisting and he will just get a ~fine $$$~ to pay and done
tungatunga 8th-Mar-2019 07:23 pm (UTC)
TOP was kicked out from police unit, if Seungri will be found guilty, they do the same, he will face the punishment and after that army will decided what to do about his enlistment.
lil_poisonfrog 8th-Mar-2019 08:04 am (UTC)
Wonder what kind of reception he'll get from the other soldiers tbh
bunnyfries 8th-Mar-2019 08:11 pm (UTC)
LOL when netizens are angry at you for enlisting too soon and WANT you to postpone, that's when you know you're in deep shit
blck_ink 8th-Mar-2019 10:03 pm (UTC)
loooooool okay
goshipgurl 8th-Mar-2019 10:20 pm (UTC)
i knew he was due, but it's funny that it's happening while he's in the midst of a huge scandal
ChulaSinMoolah 9th-Mar-2019 03:32 am (UTC)
He announced before the scandal even started that he was going to enlist in spring 2019 so
And he can still be investigated while serving
All this does at most is take him out of the public eye. Which is what the public wants anyways
