“I have received a diagnosis of malignant lymphoma. They say it is a sort of hematologic cancer. There have been some swellings and lethargy for a while, but I never noticed that it would be a signal of a serious disease. While I waited for medical confirmation, I had lots of thought in these past few weeks. The good thing is that I could finish all the scheduled work. I also finished my last filming of 'Amor Party' of tvN."
