The drama Runaway side strongly dismissed claims by the reports suspecting that Rain is trying to avoid getting the army due to his long-term stay in overseas.
“When a Korean male in his 20s doesn’t attend the army yet, he usually leaves the country with a single passport. Through a difficult situation where our schedule is so tight, there was realistically a big problem with taking the hassle and expense of getting a new single passport every time.
Since we’ve stayed abroad for a long time to minimize such a problem which may happen in the production of the drama, I think there has been a little misunderstanding. He has never said that he won’t attend the army, right ?”
