A man who's discharged from the military shares his story of witnessing Yoo Seung Ho

Pann: Account of Yoo Seung Ho in the military

"Hello. I'm not a fan or a friend of Yoo Seung Ho ahjusshi (everybody's called an ahjusshi in the army) but I'm going to write an account of him in the army because he seems to be a really good person.

First of all, I'm a guy who just got discharged from the same unit as Yoo Seung Ho-ssi. I've seen him for about 6 months. You're free to spread this on Facebook and whatever. He's too different from someone who says "miss me or diss me".

First story: It was at the military p.x. I went to p.x (convenience store in the army) and Yoo Seung Ho was there. I was thinking, "woah it's Yoo Seungho. He has a freaking small head." He had an aura and everybody was staring at him. Isn't it obvious? A top celebrity is right in front of you. But Yoo Seung Ho-ssi never cared the staring. He went on his way and took care of his seniors. I kept glancing at Yoo Seung Ho as I was shopping. I went to a drink section to buy a drink and he was there. I waited behind him and he was holding the fridge door open. I was wondering why he wasn't leaving and he asked me, "are you gonna pick a drink?" Fuck ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I was so touched. He was holding the door for me to pick a drink. I said yes and picked one and he shut the door. Only a few non-celebrities do this ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Second story: Everybody must be thinking that Yoo Seung Ho must be slacking off somehow even though he chose to join a hard unit as a celebrity. But from what I saw, he was totally the same as other soldiers. There is a task of being a gatekeeper, and the gatekeeper I saw the most during winter was Yoo Seung Ho-ssi ㅋㅋㅋ He was shivering and was standing guard with a gun in the freezing cold ㅋㅋㅋ I felt so bad watching him. As I was watching him with other soldiers, we said that this is the reality of Korea ㅋㅋㅋ The top Korean celebrities are the same when they come to the army. 

There was this major cold weather training. We had to go to a mountain and sleep in a tent when it was -30 Celsius without any warming products. The infantrymen must participate in it and the trainig soldiers like Yoo Seung Ho are randomly selected to participate because there are too many of them. The ones that are picked are extremely unfortunate... We completed the training in the cold ass weather. The last day was warm, at least. We were folding the tent and preparing to leave. There was a group of soldiers walking towards us. We were wondering who they were. Apparently, there's this night walk between 10PM until 8AM. The infantrymen hate it the most because you can't use a flashlight and have to hike the mountain in the dark when it's -20C. It's not easy. The group was just getting back from the walk so I was like, "woah... they're working freaking hard..." We were lucky because my group didn't get to do it. But then I saw Yoo Seung Ho in the group ㅋㅋㅋ Your heart will break if you see how he looked. He was camouflaged and had black paint all over his face and was breathless. He took off his bulletproof helmet and his hair was so greasy. I'm a man but even I felt bad.

There was a spare time so I kept watching Yoo Seung Ho-ssi. As soon as he got back, they had a short snack break and folded the tent. While they were having the snack, he kept asking the seniors, "OO-nim, did you have a drink?" "OO-nim, did you eat this?" and took care of the seniors. Crazy ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Even I didn't do such a thing when I was a training soldier ㅋㅋㅋ So called the "aces" only do that. His body was still struggling but he managed to take care of the seniors. Anyways, they had to leave and went to fold the tent. He volunteered to fold the tent by himself. Hah seriously ㅋㅋㅋ His personality is insanely perfect. His position was about to become a corporal and it's the timing where he can be friends with the seniors. But he snowed no sign of a celebrity and was just like any other soldier. I heard the stories before but I didn't know it was like this... He was totally amazing. 

Please greet him when Yoo Seung Ho gets discharged... I think I'll start watching Yoo Seung Ho-ssi's films... I feel sorry because I feel like I had an easier military life than Yoo Seung Ho-ssi ㅋㅋ One last thing, I heard this in the army... Yoo Seung Ho-ssi has never dated!!! He's motae-solo!!!"


1. [+374, -3] This kid never lacks anything. Mentality, looks, personalities, they're all the best. So cool

2. [+329, -9] Those who are meant to succeed have good personalities~ He'll soon get discharged. You've worked hard, see you in films. And the jerk who pulled his teeth out to be excused from the military should be thrown in jail. I don't understand. I hope he ages and chews food with his gums, just like how he wanted

3. [+289, -20] Seung Ho-ya... This noona likes you so much. I hope my dongsaeng also serves in the military well like you. I'll show this post to my dongsaeng, although he will probably tell me to screw off

4. [+81, -0] He'll be a second Yoo God

5. [+81, -0] Wait, he's a motae solo ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He must've been very popular, I guess he didn't really like anyone. Don't waste your youth by focusing on your work too much. I hope he dates

6. [+68, -1] So different from the monkey who removed their teeth
