Idols work themselves tirelessly and sometimes the fatigue gets the better of them. This can lead to detrimental conditions or diseases… Here are some idols who suffered some serious conditions, and luckily pulled through.
1. Krystal (f(x)) & Jessica
The Jung sisters are anemic. Anemia is defined by a lack of red blood cells which means that the body is not able to provide sufficient oxygen. The most common symptoms of this include fatigue, weakness and shortness of breath. It’s impressive these girls were able to dance so well with such a condition!
During their “Mr. Boogie” performance Krystal suddenly collapses.
2. Lee Joon
Lee Joon is bipolar. This means he has sudden mood swings..
Surprisingly he suffers from cochlear disorder. The disorder effects the balance determining mechanism within the inner ear. It’s unbelievable how amazing he is at dancing despite this.
3. Yoochun (JYJ)
Yoochun has been battling asthma ever since he was young. Meaning that he has trouble catching breath at times. Well..his asthma must be contagious since I have trouble catching my breath whenever he smiles…>_<
4. Yoseob (BEAST)
Can you imagine the one thing you’re most passionate about being in danger of disappearing forever? Yoseob was in this situation when he was diagnosed with laryngitis, which is the inflammation of the larynx causing you to lose your voice completely temporarily.
Thankfully he recovered this from the condition completely and we can hear the amazing voice of this talented artist again!
5. Lay (EXO-M)
Lay suffers from hemophilia which is a genetic disorder that prevents blood from clotting easily. This occurs 1 in approximately 34,000 male births. Lay must be careful of deep cuts and open wounds, because excessive blood loss can occur.
6. Tiffany (SNSD)
Tiffany developed vocal nodules throughout her career of singing. The vocal nodule reduces one’s vocal range and pains one’s throat. Tiffany must have been horrified when she felt like she was losing her singing skills..
Thankfully after proper treatment her voice is back to its normal state ^^!!
7. Zico (Block B)
The adorable yet charismatic leader of Block B, Zico, had a very tough childhood due to a chronic condition.
He had hernia in his early childhood and also had to go through heart surgery due to sever heart problems. ㅠㅠㅠㅠ
8. Hyorin (SISTAR)
It’s hard to imagine this healthy beauty being sick..
But when she was a baby she was born with a rare condition called biliary atresia this condition takes place in 1 of 15,000 infants. If untreated, this condition can cause liver failure which can be very detrimental to a baby’s health. She however overcame this condition early in her infancy.
