However, he was given a “Danger” diagnosis because the seven methylized genes are in correlation a specific type of cancer, lung cancer.
Professor Kim Hyun Mi, a domestic medical specialist, said, “Direct and indirect smoking are mains causes of lung cancer, but an indoor lifestyle can increase your chances of developing lung cancer.”
When the professor asked what his life style was like he responded, “I spend most of my time in practice facilities underground and I don’t really take walks.”
After receiving his startling diagnosis, Ilhoon sent a video message to the president of Cube Entertainment stating, “Sir, I need an air conditioner, time for walks and a dorm with good air. Oh and our car is a bit old too.”
