Lee Seung Gi, who was dispatched to the ROK Army's special operations command, was reported to have succeeded in parachuting safely from an aircraft carrier at an altitude of 730 meters (2,395 feet)!

Lee Seung Gi will conclude his training this coming April 28 after he jumps from an altitude of 500~600 meters (1600 - 2000 feet) from a CH-47 Chinook helicopter. 

Once he finishes basic training, he will start his duties as a special forces officer at the brigade in Jeungpyeong County. More specifically, Lee Seung Gi will be carrying out clerical duties as an intelligence officer. 


From parachuting from an aircraft in air to clerical duties? At least there is less risk of an on-the-job injury.

    Seunggi Oppa youre a great soldier! I knew you can go through everything. Airens are so proud of you 💕 Seunggi's SWC parachute completions are admirable not necessarily  because of height attitude ,because the other soldiers do the same, but his mindset to conquer his fear of heights. Oppa youre jjang✨👍 Fighting airens 550 days left💪

    This article is not a news. It's already a know how that military does such regardless of who they are. Now if he died while parachuting, that's NEWS.

    Seung Gi HAS acrophobia. So yeah, they have to do it anyway.

    Basic airborne quals to get his jump wings. Of course clueless AKP calls it "immense" height from an "aircraft carrier." Immense height would be a HALO/HAHO jump from 11,000 m (35,000 feet). And aircraft carriers don't fly except in the Avengers movies.
