Eight PR agents will be receiving punishment for engaging in inappropriate acts. Seven agents will receive severe punishment, while one will receive light punishment. The seven - two sergeants, three corporals and two privates - were charged for going AWOL, the use of cellphones and more.

A rep said, "After their performance in Chuncheon, Se7en and Sangchoo left their lodgings without permission, and dropped by three massage parlors in 35 minutes. They waited for 15 minutes to receive service at their fourth massage parlor, then gave up, received a refund, and happened to run into the reporter outside while they were leaving. They then returned to their lodgings," explaining what exactly happened while SBS′ In Depth 21 was filming their acts.

"The eight who will be punished will be receiving their orders from [the Ministry of Defense′s service support group]," the rep added.

Three PR agents who have less than three months left in their services will remain with the service support group, and serve with ordinary, non-celebrity soldiers. The other 12 will be sent to new units.

The six who will not be punished will start serving with their new units from August 1, while six who will be punished will be reassigned after they are disciplined.
