On February 12, Seoul Shinmun exclusively reported that Lee Joon recently slit his wrist and confessed his suicide attempt to the executive officer in his military division. Lee Joon then reportedly told the officer, "I'll fulfill my duties to the best of my ability."
The report claims Lee Joon was transferred to 'Green Camp' (an educational program for soldiers in danger) following the incident.
In response to the report, Prain TPC released an official statement of denial. The agency stated, "We have checked with Lee Joon's family and the report about him showing his slit wrist, attempting suicide, or being transferred to 'Green Camp' are all not true. Lee Joon's family is in deep shock after reading the report. We ask you to refrain from making reports for the mental stability of Lee Joon and his family."
Lee Joon enlisted in the military in October 2017.
