Yonsama Bae Yong Joon was hospitaized because of a ruptured cervical disc; his condition is more serious than expected. Bae Yong Joon was dignosed with a ruptured cervical disc and a sprained shoulder ligament. He has been receiving treatment at the hospital since the 4th. It has been known that his condition was improved, but his discharge date is uncertain and this uncertainty is making his friends and colleages sad. It has been more than 20 days since he was hospitalized including today the twentieth of January.
Someone associated with the entertainment industry said, “It seems like his condition worsened because he hasn’t received adequte treatment for the injuries, which he got during the filming of MBC’s TWSSG in 2007, at the right time. He has serious pain and might have to stay at the hospital for a long time.”
A ruptured cervical disc occurs when the jelly-like center of a disc in the spine, which works as a buffer, ruptures through a weakened area in the outer wall and causes serious pain. It is known that it affected his shoulder ligament which he had received surgery for in September of 2008.
Bae Yong Joon received injuries on his neck and shoulder because of contact due to an accident during scenes that involved a wire and a horse during the filming of TWSSG. His agency said, “Surgery has not been decided yet, and he is receiving treatment. It is uncertain when he will be discharged.”
