The tragic death  of his father and grandparents last January 6th, made Leeteuk decide to leave the military premises and head off to the funeral hall in Korea University Guro Hospital located in Gurogu, Seoul. 

Bound by his duty as citizen of Korea, Leeteuk returned to his military unit in Injegun Gangwondo at 2PM Korean Time, January 11th. He still has to complete the seven months mandatory military service that he has left.

One of the representatives in Military Manpower Administration says that the recent tragedy  and leave of absence won't affect Leeteuk's discharge date "In the case of one's parents dying during military service, there is no rule to allow an early discharge... Although there are cases of reduction and/or exemption based on grounds of difficulties that compromise their livelihood. In those cases, one has to be screened in terms of assets, monthly income, number of family members in his household, and more to apply with the necessary documents and check if they meet the requirements."

SM Entertainment also give their statement saying, "[Leeteuk] will be discharged on the set date."

Leeteuk will soon be seen on July 29th, the dates that he will be finally discharged from his military service! So, fans of Leeteuk be more patient and wait for his comeback.
