Busker Busker singer applies for exemption
Jang who is currently doing his full-time reserve military service at the Capital Defense Command 52 Homeland Defense Infantry Division is said to have torn his knee ligament in May while playing soccer. He was admitted into the Armed Forces Capital Hospital for his injuries at the time.
“Jang recently applied for military exemption. His application will be deliberated this week,” said the Capital Defense Command. “Usually most cases that involve a tear of the cruciate ligament are seen as probable cause for military exemption.”
A military exemption is when someone is discharged from their military duties earlier than scheduled due to certain health issues.
Jang debuted as a member of the band Busker Busker on the third season of Mnet’s singing competition program “Superstar K.” They are know for their hit songs such as “Cherry Blossom Ending” (2012), “Love, At First” (2013) and “If You Really Love Me” (2016).
