According to a spokesperson of the Ministry of Defense, Rain “returned” his last vacation days - meaning that he volunteered to not have the last vacation time given to him. The spokesperson said that “I believe this shows his (Rain’s) determination to do his best for the remaining days in the military.”

Despite Rain's actions, many are suspicious about Rain’s sudden decision to decline his vacation. Rain's previous scandals included his frequent breaks from the military base, seeing Kim Tae Hee while on offsite duty, and recently, going out drinking with singer SE7EN. Many people are wondering if Rain is declining his last military vacation in attempt to make up for his scandals.

However, Rain’s spokesperson said that Rain’s been thinking about not taking his last military vacation since before the recent scandal.
