On April 12, Kim Beom's management agency KING KONG by STARSHIP Entertainment officially stated, "Kim Beom will begin his mandatory military duty as a public service worker on April 26." The agency continued, "Although he will still be completing the basic military training, he will be serving the duty as a public service worker instead of an active-duty soldier because of health issues."
They explained, "Kim Beom has been receiving treatment since his early 20s due to a hereditary illness. He has put in a lot of time and effort into treating the illness by taking medication and exercising regularly, but he ended up having to serve the duty as a public service worker."At the moment, his agency is refusing to reveal what Kim Beom's hereditary illness is.
They said, "We cannot reveal what his hereditary illness is, as it is a private matter."Kim Beom will start his basic military training on April 26, and is expected to serve his alternative military service as a public service worker for about two years after his training.
Earlier on March 29, Kim Beom has confirmed that he is in a relationship with actress Oh Yeon Seo.
