Chinese media site Sina has reported that EXO's Kris visited the hospital due to possible heart issues.

The report alleged, "Kris was diagnosed with suspected myocarditis at the hospital." A medical certificate with Kris' Chinese name 'Wu Yi Fan' was also provided as proof. Sina stated that a medical professional commented, "I can't say that he has a heart problem, but his creatine kinase and isozyme levels are higher than average, so we can't exclude the possibility of myocarditis. In cases like this, we suggest another examination, and if the levels are still high, we suggest treatment from a specialist as well as rest."

Kris is said to have received a diagnosis of suspected myocarditis on a visit to a hospital in Guangzhou, China when he returned from the '12th Korean Musical Festival' in Los Angeles, California on May 2.

To add to the reports, a former SM Entertainment trainee and self-labeled friend of Kris named Song Byung Yang posted to Weibo about the situation. He wrote, "As a musician who spent 7 years in Korea, I can completely understand Kris' decision and the dilemma he went through. As an old friend of his, it wasn't easy seeing him struggle due to the severe mental stress and fatigue. Because his body couldn't handle it, he even developed heart problems. Everyone, support and understand Kris. I hope that you show him even more kindness now. Yi Fan, I welcome you home." 

Song Byung Yang is reported by Sina to have started as a trainee at SM Entertainment in 2004 before parting ways with the agency in 2011.

Maybe this sheds some light on Kris' message to fans?

Poor Kris. D: I hope everything goes well for him and he gets the rest he deserves. Even soldiers in the army get more rest than SM's artists! D: <

... I think... > <

I love Kris as much as everyone else in EXO and I hope he doesn't get any more hate from all those horrid people. He doesn't deserve anything bad. He's a great person who only had the guts to do what he really wants. I doubt the other EXO members don't think abot leaving. Having to perform in both Korea and China is very tiring.

Well, with these news about Kris being in hospital etc the things are a bit clearer to me. I'm not saying "Oh Kris, poor cutiepie" or else, but let's think on it. Probably Kris cameback to China, had a medical visit while they were there promoting, found out the possibility of this desease and then decided to live, also because of the problems we all know he had with staying in SMEnt. It seems the most logic possibility to me. It would explain a lot of things like why he left without saying anything to the other members, why he left so suddenly one week before the concert, etc.. Etc... However, the most important thing is that SMEnt should be less strict. I know we should't bash SM before the court has dedided whether it has right or not, but let's face it, SMEnt is the label with the highest number of this lawsuits in its past, and each one of them with the same point: illtreatment/ abuse of its power. I think, as someone said before, that if SMEnt just let their employees be and let them leave if they want to, peacefully, it would gain a lot more respect and good reputation. There would be a lot less fuss and it would be a lot more rightful and elegant way of sprting out this issues.

I love EXO . but what happen ?

I really wish Kris happiness and I cannot believe he was diagnosed with a heart problem (or infection) like that :/. That is very dangerous and I hope he takes good care of himself, especially his heart. He only has one, and if he doesnt then it's all over. Kris must have really suffered from working so hard and those insane schedules. T.T

Myocardial Infarction -> Heart Attack.
Myocarditis -> Heart Infection.

Not the same. Both dangerous, but not the same, and not confirmed, either of them.

Yeah but what I found shocking is a "professional" is able to reveal this to the public. Is that even credible? What ever happened to privacy!?

ragu Wednesday, May 28, 2014

@zipZAPP maybe he was permitted by kris' party. since kris needs this for his case. idk.
