As for growing suspicion over his second sons military service exemption, Prime Minister nominee Lee Wan-koo said, If necessary, I will accept any measures to be taken such as open examination of MRI and X-ray. He displayed additional willingness that he would open all the relevant information on his early discharge from military service and bestowed asset to allay the suspicion.
On the way to his office at the training institute of the Financial Supervisory Service in central Seoul, the nominee said, If already-submitted materials cannot dispel the suspicion, my son is planning to openly respond by appearing in the public.
His second son was given Grade 3 in physical examination of conscripts in August 2000. But as he had a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament during a football game when he was studying in America in October 2004, the son had a surgery for the rupture in December 2005. In his physical examination in June 2006, he was granted a military service exemption with Grade 5.
