It was unexpected that in the midst of the busy activities of these four Korean artists, they had to be able to endure the pain they were experiencing.
In fact, they also had to decide to take a break from the entertainment industry to undergo intensive treatment.
Here is a list of 5 popular Korean artists who have chronic diseases;
- Kim Woo Bin
First is Kim Woo Bin. When he was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer in 2017, this heartbreaking news shocked the world of the South Korean entertainment industry. This lover of Shin Min Ah then had to undergo chemotherapy because of his acute illness.
Kim Woo Bin has reluctantly been on hiatus for about three years of his career.
- Jung Il Woo
Jung Il Woo suffers from a blood vessel disorder in his brain, or what is called a disease called cerebral aneurysm, which was diagnosed in 2017.
Cerebral Aneurysm is a condition in which the walls of the blood vessels are weakened causing the arteries to dilate. Bleeding caused by this disease can lead to stroke, coma, and death.
3. Kim Bum
In fact, Kim Bum experienced a different kind of disease, who was suffering from a hereditary disease for 11 years.
Precisely since entering the age of two heads.
Opponent playing Lee Min Ho in the drama Boys Over Flowers was eventually placed as a public service worker while serving in the military because he did not meet the health qualifications to become an active soldier.
4. Yoo Ah In
Yoo Ah In was diagnosed with a benign bone tumor in 2017.
Due to the disease, the actor was eventually released from military service, which was controversial.
Not without reason, after announcing that he was suffering from a benign bone tumor, Yoo Ah In actually took an offer to star in the tvN drama Chicago Typewriter (2017).
In fact, the man who was born in 1986 was reportedly sick and had to postpone his military service.
When asked about the reasons for choosing to play drama over the military, Yoo Ah In acknowledged his inability to serve the country.
5. Seo In Guk
Seo In Guk’s illness was only revealed to the public while he was serving in the military.
The actor is scheduled to enter the military headquarters in March 2017.
After four days of serving the country, the star of the drama The Masters Sun had to be released due to a severe ankle injury.
As it turned out, Seo In Guk had osteochondritis dissecans, a condition in which a portion of the cartilage and underlying bone separates from the joint surface.
This also caused the actor’s health rating to drop to level 5, thus being exempted from military service.
