Leeteuk apologizes for absence due to illness, promises to be present at today's concert


Leeteuk promised to be on stage in Chile.

Yesterday, he was absent from the 'SMTOWN Special Stage in Santiago' because of enteritis. He posted on Instagram and wrote, "Last year, I had a cholecystectomy, and realized after that, it was not as easy to digest. I had stomach pains and diarrhea often. Five days ago, when we were filming, I had continuous diarrhea, but I hoped it would be okay and I got to Chile after 30 hours of travel time. However, my condition worsened, and I want to apologize to our Chilean fans. Because of this, I will definitely be on stage on the 2nd SMTOWN show that will take place today. I'm sorry for worrying you every time with my health conditions. I'll work harder than anyone today. Chile ELF, sorry and thank you."

Hope he's recovered!

작년 담낭절제 수술후 소화하는데 예전처럼 쉽지가 않은거 같아 자주 복통이나 설사가 많았습니다 이번에도 5일전부터 촬영하면서 계속 설사를 반복하다가 괜찮아지겠지하고 30시간이 넘게 걸려 칠레에 도착했지만 증세가 악화되었습니다 오래 기다렸을 우리 칠레 팬들께 죄송하단 말씀 드리고 싶습니다. 그래서 오늘있을 smtown두번째 공연에는 꼭 무대에 올라가려 합니다 매번 이렇게 건강상태가 좋지 않은상황을 팬여려분께 전달해 심려끼쳐 죄송합니다 오늘은 그어느때보다도 열심히 최선을 다하겠습니다 우리 칠레엘프 여러분 감사하고 죄송합니다 Desde la cirugia de vesicula que tuve el año pasado sufría dolores del estómago y mal digestiones. Antes de venir a Chile tuve una grabación que duró 5 dias donde sufrí colicos e indisgestiones. Pensé que se iba a mejorar pero llegando a Chile con 30 horas de vuelo los sintomas empeoraron. Antes que todo, quisiera disculparme a todos los fans de Chile que me habrán esperado mucho. Es por eso que estoy haciendo lo posible para subir al escenario en la segunda ronda del show. Les pido perdon por dejarlos preocupados seguidamente con mi tema de salud. Hoy voy a hacer todo lo posible para entregarles lo mejor de mi. Perdon y muchas gracias a mis ELFs de Chile.
