S.Coup granted military exemption

SEOUL (ANN/THE KOREA HERALD) – Local media reported on Friday that S.Coups, the leader of the popular boy group Seventeen, has been exempted from mandatory military service due to a knee injury.

The injury occurred in August 2023, prompting S.Coups to undergo surgery. Pledis Entertainment, the artist’s agency, revealed that S.Coups sustained a left knee injury while filming with other Seventeen members, resulting in an anterior cruciate ligament rupture diagnosis.

As a result of the surgery, S.Coups was unable to participate in activities related to Seventeen’s 11th mini-album, “Seventeenth Heaven,” released in October of the same year, as well as the group’s dome tour in Japan titled “Follow.”

However, despite his injury, S.Coups is set to make a comeback with Seventeen in April. He is reportedly committed to participating in the group’s upcoming concerts, scheduled to commence on March 30-31 at the Incheon Asiad Main Stadium, ahead of the release of their new album. Nonetheless, Pledis Entertainment cautioned that S.Coups may not be able to participate in every performance, depending on his knee’s recovery progress.

Jeonghan, another Seventeen member who took time off from group activities due to ankle surgery in December, will also be returning alongside S.Coups.
