A former SWC soldier posted on a blog that he received a KaTalk message from someone who’s now a Major serving in the same battalion as SeungGi. The Major said he did a long-distance march with SeungGi and even sent a proof shot. Unfortunately, they can’t share the photo in public.
The blog post is very long, and I really don’t have time to translate everything. But just to sum up, the march is 400km of mountain path in distance on the map, but the actual walking distance is over 500km. This is considered the most difficult training in SWC.
A dclsg fan shared something she read in the comments:
For SWC soldiers, the long-distance march is done on a voluntary basis! And the march in SWC is not simply marching for a long distance, it’s marching without sleeping at night! They rest for only 6 hours a day (2 hours at a time including breakfast, lunch and dinner), and march about 70km during the other 18 hours each day for an entire week!
Another fan said someone had asked at the Children’s Day event in Jeungpyeong and was told SeungGi had gone for training. LSJ also said in his interview on May 3 that SeungGi was in training. So it seems that the training was actually the long-distance march. And SeungGi did this right after 5 weeks of airborne training! I hope he will get some good rest on his leave!
