Lee Hyori had been hospitalized on 26th December after fainting at home.
Lee Hyori’s management, Mnet Media expressed, “We tried contacting her at her home at around 11pm on 26th December but no one answered the phone. So her manager went up to her place and found her unconscious at home. She was immediately sent to Gangnam Samsung hospital for treatment.”
It’s believed that Lee Hyori is suffering from pneumonia and dehydration. Mnet Media also revealed that Hyori had lost about 7kg in the last 10 days and her health condition wasn’t very good. She had her first-ever solo concert on the 19th and 20th December and will take part in the year-end music festivals from 29th to 31st December. She had in fact been making trips to the hospital in the period between her last Family Outing recording and her concert to treat her fatique and flu picked up from the harsh winter outdoor variety filming.
Doctors has advised Lee Hyori to be warded in hospital for rest and recuperation for 10 or more days and will be undergoing a detailed checkup tomorrow. Mnet Media expressed that it would be cancelling all the scheduled CF shoots and broadcast programs for Hyori and are still deciding on her involvement in the year-end gayo daejuns from 29th to 31st December.
Dae Sung of Big Bang has now been confirmed as her replacement as MC while her joint stage with Rain will now become a solo Rain perfomance instead. Hyori had originally been scheduled for a series of dance battle stages with Rain and Son Dambi over the next 3 days. But it looks like it’s not going to happen.
Hyori who has been in a coma since fainting at home on the 26th, has finally awoken today. But she is likely to miss the year-end gayo daejuns as her health isn’t very good and she needs a lot of rest at the moment. It was uncertain earlier whether Hyori will skip the gayo daejuns as they couldn’t speak to her while she was in a coma. But Mnet Media has confirmed after discussions that Hyori will skip the gayo daejuns and SBS drama award for which she was scheduled for. She has cried over it but it can’t be helped, “I really want to show even more thrilling performances after my concert. But it’s a pity I can’t and I am very sad about it. I will do my best to recover as soon as possible and meet everyone again on Family Outing, etc as a healthy Hyori once more.”
