It was recently revealed that Ji Soo had to undergo emergency surgery for acute osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone) on September 12. He had apparently been suffering from severe leg pain for a couple weeks and had undergone diagnostic tests at the hospital when they suspected bone cancer. But his condition worsened while waiting for the results, and he developed a high fever. He was admitted to the hospital and further tests revealed the actual diagnosis of acute osteomyelitis. Ji Soo then underwent emergency surgery and is now in recovery.
Ji Soo is currently in the dramas Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Goryeo and Fantastic. With Moon Lovers already finished filming, his role will not be affected. But with Fantastic sill in the middle of filming, the production team has stated that he will not be recast, but the script will have to undergo significant revisions.
I was so sad to hear this news! This is a very serious condition, and I’m glad they were able to diagnosis it quickly and get him medical care. It’s a shame that this will effect his role in Fantastic, but the main thing is that he gets adequate time to rest and recover. I know we are all wishing him a quick recovery!
