On the July 4th episode of SBS's 'One Night in TV Entertainment', Ulala Session's Yuntaek tried to clear up some unfortunate rumors surrounding his health.
As fans already know, Yuntaek was diagnosed with stage four stomach cancer, but with his upbeat and lively personality and performances on TV, some started to question whether he was indeed suffering from cancer like it had been reported.
Yuntaek expressed, "A lot of people didn't believe that I had cancer because they saw me promoting as a singer on TV."
To help clear things up, his doctor came on air to discuss Yuntaek's health, stating, "He is diagnosed with stage four stomach cancer and is past the point of complete recovery."
Despite the clear up, some still seemed to doubt whether he was telling the truth. Yuntaek stated, "I think it's funny that I even have to explain myself on TV like this." When asked how his current condition was, he replied, "Do you want me to explain my state honestly, or give you a made-for-TV reply? Because if I answer honestly, it'll get sad."
He continued, "It's hard for me. After our schedules, the members will massage me while I rest in bed. It's also hard having to deal with the different side effects every time I switch anticancer treatments."
To the people that still don't believe his battle with cancer, Yuntaek expressed, "I can understand why they would think that. But I think it's strange that I have to explain that it is true that I'm sick. It's like saying I'm a man when I am in fact a man."
