BTS member Jin received an unauthorized visit from a military nurse who administered a vaccine in mid-January, according to a report from Beta News.
The nurse allegedly left her unit in the 28th Division without permission and infiltrated the 5th Division’s recruit training center in Yeoncheon-gun—where Jin was stationed at the time—with the help of a medic there. That afternoon, she gave a secondary vaccine against hemorrhagic fever.
Upon returning to her unit, the nurse told her co-workers that “Jane was in so much pain.” Since the nurse did not inform her superior in advance, it will be considered an offense to Article 79 of the Military Criminal Code to leave the workplace without permission, which is punishable by up to one year imprisonment with or without work.
In addition, the nurse is also suspected of distributing a large quantity of Tylenol to the 5th Division from the 28th Division supplies after hearing about a shortage. The 28th Division, the 5th Division, and the Military Police of the Fifth Corps reportedly conducted a joint investigation in March.
Jin began his required military service at the end of last year and is currently working as an assistant instructor at the 5th Division Recruitment Training Center.
