The management company, Prain TPC, of actor Ji Soo has provided more details following the actor’s acute osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone or bone marrow).
President of Prain TPC, Yeo Jun Yeong, posts a photo of the actor on SNS and writes:
“Weeks ago, Ji Soo’s leg was hurting, and so, he went to the hospital to be able to get treatment and examinations. The doctor said that it might be bone cancer. We went into a larger hospital to get a diagnostic workup. The results would be available after the Chuseok holiday. However, his condition had worsened to the point that he needed painkillers and a wheelchair.
His fever almost rose to 40 degrees Celsius and was admitted to a hospital before the sun rose. The people from the hospital immediately did a body scan and confirmed that it was acute osteomyelitis and not cancer after checking the MRI.
Osteomyelitis is also a painful and terrifying disease. However, it was less bad news since we were praying for it not to be cancer. He had a long surgery that ended around 9 pm yesterday, and I was then able to meet him.
We will observe his progress. We are grateful that this is a hardship which he can overcome. I am deeply grateful to the medical team who did their best. We are in discussion with regards to the current projects that he is filming to find a solution that causes the least inconvenience. But, we will focus on doing our best to console Ji Soo’s family and take care of him so that he could recover. We apologize to those who were shocked after seeing the news and causing them to worry before the holiday.”
