Ravi opted to serve in the military as a social service worker instead of undergoing the usual military service due to health reasons.

Before leaving 2 Days 1 Night last year, he revealed that he found out about his health issues two years ago. The K-pop idol disclosed that his body, heart, and mind are not healthy; thus, he suffers from unstable breathing from time to time.

It remains unknown whether he will allow his fans to accompany him before entering the military this week.
