1. [+633, -9] They clearly didn't educate their kid... So he was scared of the army more than ghosts. I hope his hyungs over at the army give him some special treatment.

2. [+434, -10] Who is this nugu anyway?

3. [+197, -7] Some nugu I never even knew existed gets his first mainstream article about his military evasion. He looks like a mental patient from his picture alone. They better punish him properly.

4. [+15, -0] He really thought acting like a mental patient would work? Should've just extracted a tooth while he was at it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+11, -1] That's fine, he can just join the marines ㅋ
