When he's in 20+, some news already spread the Cancer news. But at that time, he don't have cancer, only checked up completely for the test. Some said it's media that guessing, some said, the nurse that guess. Sad that few years later, he suffered from it. This member suffered the most by media actually. Which was one of the reasons H.O.T couldn't comeback for years. He said he didn't want to appear in entertainment industry again due to all those "attacks" from media. Not to mention H.O.T was & is still one of 1st gen that targeted by politics. Few years ago, he finally agreed & brave enough to comeback again with H.O.T. but of course, some media & politics ruined again. Too bad Club H.O.T wasn't as active as these days fandoms anymore, so, they cannot defend H.O.T members. Those evils really picked old stuffs & paid more people to ruined again, portrayed as much sensitive as possible. Remember there is still at least one song of H.O.T that still got cut on TV/radio, still got hide from any cover song, portrayed it as if it's not popular back then when it was hit back then too.
