The news of actress Jang Jin Young (34) having stomach cancer was met with shock and concern by many after it was made known today.
Jang Jin Young had went for a routine body checkup at a local hospital in Seoul on 17th September and got the news that she had stomach cancer a week later on the 24th. She was supposed to be hospitalised today under the company of family members and start receiving chemotherapy treatment. But the news led to reporters flooding the hospital which left Jang Jin Young with no choice but to move to another one whose location will not be revealed for now.
One of her close friends expressed, “She (Jang Jin Young) often complained of stomach pains but didn’t made too much of it. This diagnosis has really shocked her but she will go through the treatment to cure it.” All her future schedules have been shelved as she devotes her energy towards a full recovery.
Yedang Entertainment released a statement confirming that Jang Jin Young had indeed contracted stomach cancer but it’s not in the final stages. They believe that she would make a full recovery with prompt and proper treatment.
