According to TIME, the ministry has said that the pop star has acknowledged that he broke military rules and that he will practice “self-restraint.”

A two to three year enlistment is compulsory for all men in South Korea. Rain, who enlisted in October 2011, serves as a corporal in a unit that promotes the military through TV and radio.

Rain is scheduled to finish his services on July 10 this year, but the defense ministry may  choose to extend his enlist as a punishment.
