VIXX Ravi Apologizes for Military Issue and Formally Withdrawals from the Group

Ciera Reeves

On April 11, 2023, Ravi took his SNS explaining his side of the recent military corruption scandal, apologizing to epilepsy patients, VIXX members, and announcing the decision to withdraw from the group. 

First of all, I would like to apologize to everyone who has suffered and been hurt due to my mistake.

In the past, I received a social service judgment due to an existing illness and was postponing my service. However, I reached a point where it was difficult to postpone my service any longer.

At that time, I was the only artist generating income for the company, and I was facing the burden of breach of contract due to the delay in fulfilling the contracts signed before COVID-19. It was an urgent time to postpone my service.

In my desperation, I made a foolish decision, and after resolving the concerns about the company and the contract, I applied for social service and have been fulfilling my military duty since October of last year.

I would like to sincerely apologize to all the epilepsy patients and their families who may have been hurt by my irrational behavior and my actions, and to all military service personnel who are sincerely fulfilling their duties even at this moment.

I am also deeply sorry to all the fans who have supported me as a singer and as a person beyond that for a long time and to whom the time we spent together seems now meaningless and falling apart.

I wanted to be a proud presence, but I am now ashamed to show this embarrassing side of me. Compared to the precious hearts that all of you have sincerely given me over the years, I feel like I was a completely inadequate person.

Lastly, I have decided to leave the team so that the other members of VIXX will not suffer any further due to my mistake. I am sincerely grateful to all the members who have been with me for 11 long years, and I feel deeply sorry beyond words.

I earnestly hope that there will be no further harm to the valuable efforts of the members.

I still feel like I am a person with a lot of inadequacies and things to learn. I believe that I should take all the criticism that is given to me as my responsibility. If you scold me a lot, I will feel more deeply and learn.

I know that my humble words of apology do not make up for my mistake. I will continue to remember this moment and strive to become a better person.

I sincerely apologize.

Accordingly, the official fancafe of VIXX updated with the message, 

Hello. This is Jellyfish Entertainment.

We sincerely thank the fans who support VIXX, and we inform you of member Ravi’s departure from VIXX.

After careful discussion between Ravi and the agency, it was decided that he will leave the team as of today.

We deeply apologize for causing trouble to the fans who support VIXX.

Ravi along with rapper Nafla are the main faces used in the media for the military evasion scandal that involves the inditement of around 137 people in a joint investigation. "Broker Gu" had a consulting business guiding men on how to receive a military postponement, receive higher military grades of disability, or full military exemption (grade 6). 

Although Ravi received a grade 4 (social service) due to other illnesses back in 2019. Ravi consulted with Gu and was instructed on how to receive another military postponement, which he used to fulfill entertainment work contracts to help operate the agency until his social work enlistment in October 2022. The persecution is currently asking for a 2-year prison sentence for Ravi and 2 years and 6 months for Nafla in the first trial appearance. 

Ravi debuted in the Jellyfish Entertainment group VIXX in 2012 and went on to establish his own entertainment agency GROOVL1N in 2019, the agency of Nafla.
