Many of you may not know of old school rock band Boohwal, but for those of you who followed them back in the day, it was unfortunately reported that leader Kim Tae Won (46) was diagnosed with stomach cancer. The leader of the rock band was documented on KBS 2TV's 'Happy Sunday - Qualifications of Men', which aired on the 27th and told of how Kim Tae Won felt when he received the diagnosis. "I felt...the word 'cancer' itself...was enough to end the world," said Kim Tae Won in the preview segment. The preview clip also showed his family and the 'Qualifications of Men' staff shedding tears. Kim Tae Won's agency spoke to Star News and said, "Kim Tae Won tested for cancer in mid-January while shooting the show's episode, 'Man, and cancer', and was diagnosed with stomach cancer." They also added, "Kim Tae Won underwent surgery to remove the tumor on the 16th, and underwent another one on the 22nd. All of the tumors have been removed successfully, and so he is currently recovering." A staff member revealed, "Kim Tae Won attended all of recording sessions and scheduled concerts while keeping the diagnosis and surgery as a secret. He checked out of the hospital on the 26th. He is currently recovering." The full story of Kim Tae Won's diagnosis and surgery will air via the 'Qualifications of Men' segment on March 6th. We hope he makes a speedy and healthy recovery.
