Writer and entertainer Heo Ji Woong reveals he's suffering from malignant lymphoma


Writer and entertainer Heo Ji Woong revealed he's currently suffering from malignant lymphoma.

On December 12, Heo Ji Woong wrote to his fans on Instagram that he was recently diagnosed with malignant lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system. He posted the following letter:

"I've been diagnosed with malignant lymphoma. They say it's a form of hematologic malignancy. I've been noticing some swelling and lethargy for a long time, but I had no idea it was a sign of such a serious disease. I waited for confirmation these past few weeks, but I've been thinking a lot. I'm glad I could finish all the work I signed up for. Yesterday, I finished my last filming and feel comfortable in my mind. I started chemotherapy last week. In my collection of essays 'For a Life Endured', I wrote we should endure together, and I like that saying a lot. I believe life can only be lived by enduring what comes. I think we should hold in our hearts a phrase that is dear to us and endure until the end. I will win against this. Thank you."

His agency Esteem Entertainment also stated Heo Ji Woong noticed symptoms during the middle of a busy schedule, and after getting examined by the doctor, he was diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and has been undergoing chemotherapy. He'll be taking a hiatus from any activities to focus on treatment.

Hopefully, Heo Ji Woong recovers soon.

악성림프종 진단을 받았습니다. 혈액암의 종류라고 합니다. 붓기와 무기력증이 생긴지 좀 되었는데 미처 큰병의 징조라고는 생각하지 못했습니다. 확진까지 이르는 요 몇주 동안 생각이 많았습니다. 그나마 다행인건 미리 약속된 일정들을 모두 책임지고 마무리할 수 있었다는 점입니다. 어제 마지막 촬영까지 마쳤습니다. 마음이 편해요. 지난 주부터 항암치료를 시작했습니다. <버티는 삶에 관하여>에서 말씀드렸듯이 저는 “함께 버티어 나가자”라는 말을 참 좋아합니다. 삶이란 버티어 내는 것 외에는 도무지 다른 방도가 없기 때문입니다. 그렇다면 우리 모두 마음 속에 끝까지 지키고 싶은 문장 하나씩을 담고, 함께 버티어 끝까지 살아냅시다. 이길게요. 고맙습니다.
