Jung Il Woo reported to have recently recovered from herpes labialis

Jung Il Woo has recently recovered from herpes labialis.

His label confirmed that he was diagnosed with it in December, but he has currently recovered and is filming 'Haechi' without any problems. His label explained that he lost 14 kg (31 lb) in 1 month for his new character. Because of the sudden weight loss, his immune system lowered, resulting in his herpes.

He suffered from it for 2 weeks, and still has a cut from it. He is recording through makeup and CG.

His drama 'Haechi' will start airing on February 11th.

That's not how herpes works... It isn't just a "sore".

you clearly don't know much about the issue. cold sores are caused by the herpes virus. herpes virus can easily be transferred through kissing or even sharing a cup/utensil. thats also why when you grow up, kids can get cold sores without ever having sex. some people get cold sores regularly and some have cold sores once every few years. once you get the herpes virus for the first time (ie. you got a cold sore when you were a kid), it never goes away. it stays in your body forever but is not harmful. jung il woo got a cold sore because he lost too much weight too quickly, which is harmful for his immune system and this resulted in a flare up. the type of herpes strain he has is HSV-1, which is very common and everyone whos had a cold sore in the past also has this strain.


HSV-2 is the uncommon one, where sores start appearing on the genitals. this is the "real" herpes that everyone knows about and is transmitted usually through sex.


so basically, they reported on jung il woo having a cold sore... which seems very unnecessary since its so common.

I know about Herpes. If you rush the healing you can end up scarring yourself

2 weeks for a cold sore? Famciclovir, people. It's an antiviral. It clears it up in a few days at the most. You can buy it without a prescription here in Australia.

Probably can't get it in South Korea though. They are notorious for being strict with medications. Plus since he's an actor they no doubt had him see his doctor and if it was bad enough a plastic surgeon.
