Investigators at the Seoul Eastern District Prosecutors’ office are expanding their probe into conscription evasion after being tipped off about case involving a son of a celebrity.

An insider of the prosecution said, “We were informed that the son of a celebrity who had worked at an IT-related firm with military exemption status effectively received the job through irregularities. Although the statute of limitations is over in relation to illegally obtaining the job, we are investigating whether there were bribes involved in the process of getting the job.”

He also added, “We received another report and are now investigating another company that allegedly was bribed huge sums of money in exchange for hiring such employees.”
