(Below is the statement from Choi Jin Hyuk's agency)
Hello, we are agency Red Brick House representing actor Choi Jin Hyuk.
We are making an announcement that Choi Jin Hyuk will be making a medical leave from the military on October 16.
Since his enlistment on March 31, he suffered a serious knee injury and received stem cell cartilage transplant surgery on his left knee. It is determined that Choi Jin Hyuk needs long-term rehabilitation treatment which makes it difficult for him to serve in the military any longer.
Choi Jin Hyuk hoped to return to the military service after his surgery. However, the ongoing treatment and rehabilitation needs are unavoidable, resulting in his medical leave.
Choi Jin Hyuk is quite distressed by the unexpected turn of events given his intention was to serve and complete his military duty. As an agency representing him, we regret having to inform you of such news as well.
Choi Jin Hyuk will focus on his treatment and rehabilitation from this point on.
This is one of those shocking news that comes as a mixture of good news and bad news.
With Choi Jin Hyuk out of his military service, I have a feeling that fans, including myself, really want to know how well he is recovering and how soon he'll be back to K-dramaland. We also hope that he's not too upset with having to leave his military duty early.
Best wishes to Choi Jin Hyuk, and hope to see you soon!
