Due to overexertion for preparing photoessay 'of Korea...'
To be discharged from hospital today… to finish schedule as planned including commemorative meeting for publication, etc.
'Hallyu star' BYJ is in a hospital.
According to BYJ's agency, BOF, BYJ was down from overexertion, and was admitted to a hospital in Kangnam, Seoul on the 17th. The agency said, "BYJ seemed to have overexerted himself with the publication of the book ahead of him. Because his blood sugar and blood pressure dropped very much, he went to the hospital."
Although there was a rumor that he had a new version of influenza regarding BYJ's hospitalization, it turned out that he had early symptoms of sepsis caused by overexertion, being different from the rumor.
Since he has been pouring his heart and blood into preparing the photoessay 'Travel left for exploring beauty of Korea-BYJ', which will go on sale on the 23rd, he became ill in the end. BYJ became very thin as he lost over 10-Kg of weight while writing this book.
A staff in his agency said, "He has been straining his nerves very much due to the publication of the book to the extent that he got ill. He seems to have fallen sick because his personality is such that he devotes himself more than 100% once he does a project. It is heartbreaking that he lost so much weight."
BYJ plans to finish his entire officially planned schedules regardless of his hospitalization. He will carry out a commemorative meeting for publication of 'Travel left to explore beauty of Korea' to be held at the National Central Museum in Yongsan Ku, Seoul on the 22nd, and schedules in Japan that begin on the 28th, without a snag. The agency said, "He himself has the strong will to get up (from a sickbed), shaking off a disease. His heart is to be on stage as he recovers by the 22nd."
BYJ decided to be discharged from the hospital before noon on the 21st. BYJ is considering taking a rest at his home from the 22nd until he leaves for Japan.
