It looks like Jung Il Woo, who recently starred in the adorable romantic comedy Cinderella and the Four Knights, will be beginning his mandatory military service in December. He will be enlisting as a public service worker due to health issues. It is well known that Jung Il Woo suffered severe injuries in a 2006 car accident along with his friend Lee Min Ho.
But it was just recently revealed that Jung Il Woo has been diagnosed with a cerebral aneurysm after dealing with chronic headaches. Cerebral aneurysms are enlarged blood vessels in the brain that carry the risk of rupture and bleeding which can result in stroke or death.
I am so saddened to hear this news. Cerebral aneurysms can be extremely serious and are definitely not to be taken lightly. Apparently, Jung Il Woo would likely be exempt from even serving as a public service worker with this condition, but as of now, he wants to serve.
I just hope that he and his doctors really keep a close eye on this and adjust his activities accordingly. This is just such heartbreaking news and my thoughts and prayers definitely go out to him.
