Following his recent shoulder injury, it is now reported that actor Yoo Ah In has been diagnosed with a bone tumour.
“It is true that he has a bone tumor. We can’t say if it’s serious or not. It’s a sensitive matter regarding his personal information so we cannot say much about the level of seriousness.”
The agency stated that Yoo Ah In is waiting for a follow-up examination and will release an official statement once both the company and actor are ready to speak.
The actor previously made headlines last December when he received a shoulder injury during the filming of "Tough As Iron", causing his military enlistment to be postponed. With this new diagnosis, the Military Manpower Administration has stated that it will need to "monitor" Yoo Ah In's condition. Should he be given the all clear, Yoo Ah In's next military enlistment physical exam is scheduled for March.
We've got our fingers crossed for Yoo Ah In and hopefully the examination comes back with good results.
