After a very long time, pop trio “Koyote” was finally back, and their member Baekga is happier than everyone else. In 2009, it was revealed that Baekga undergine a surgery because of a brain tumor. Baekga had took up photography as a side-job, thinking, â€˜I might as well just take pictures since Iâ€™m sick.â€˜
He said, â€œI missed performing alongside my members a lot during my year-and-a-half recovery period. It was weird taking such a long break since I worked as an artist during my early 20â€™s, and performed every year ever since; I watched our past videos as I waited for our reunion. I was a bit disappointed that taking a break was unavoidable, but Iâ€™m glad I stuck it out now that we are reunitedâ€œ.
Baekga commented, â€œThe surgery went well and Iâ€™ve recovered from it a lot. Thankfully, itâ€™s not going to affect the teamâ€™s activity, but just to be sure, Iâ€™m still getting check-ups regularly and I always have painkillers and medicine on hand. The most important thing is condition adjustment. Itâ€™s very sensitive so if my body is stressed, things might get worse and it could have an effect on my members, so I have to take precautionsâ€œ.
He admitted, â€œI exercised a lot before my comeback so that I can lose the hidden fat I acquired. I even lost 11kg in almost 2 weeks. I tend to follow things through when I make up my mind. The weight came off rather fast when I just ate chicken breasts and ran for 2 hours everydayâ€œ.
Baekga also revealed that he is experiencing such effects from surgery, he stated, â€œMy pronunciation wasnâ€™t that great to begin with, but after the surgery, it became even worse; Iâ€™m trying to work on it more by slowing down when I talk and enunciating every word.â€
Concluding, Baekga said, â€œMy first is Koyote. Everything, including photography, I did was possible and successful because of Koyote. I didnâ€™t have any special determination before the comeback. I want to enjoy being a part of Koyote and I hope people cheer us on throughout our activitiesâ€œ.
