On January 12, SBS 8 News reported that a joint investigation team led by prosecutors and the military’s affair office had booked VIXX’s Ravi on suspicion of violating military law. The joint investigation team suspects Ravi had falsely claimed he suffered from epilepsy so that he would receive a lower health score and an exemption from active duty.

A joint investigation team led by prosecutors and the military’s affair office recently booked the VIXX’s rapper Ravi on suspicion of violating military conscription laws.
The joint investigation team suspects Ravi had gotten an exemption by claiming he had epilepsy and receiving a lower health grade by asking for a re-evaluation.
Ravi will be summoned soon for further evaluation.
The joint investigation team stated that they would summon Ravi for further questioning. Ravi’s label GROOVL1N earlier released a statement in which they stated they are still looking into the allegations.
Ravi enlisted in October 2022 and is currently serving in the military as a public service worker. Controversy arose when the news outlet Joy News24 first reported that Ravi was suspected of being the “famous rapper” that was in connection to an illegal military exemption scheme in which former military officials aided individuals to receive exemptions.
