Update: Eun Ji Won has been discharged from hospital on 15th January and resumed his normal schedule on 16th January, filming 1N2D.
It was reported that Eun Ji Won had been sent to hospital for treatment on 13th January after contracting high fever. The high fever was an escalation from the flu that he contracted after recording KBS 1N2D on 9th January.
According to sources, Eun Ji Won had actually planned to visit a doctor after recording 1N2D for his flu. But because of his packed schedule, he couldn’t find the time to do so and decided to work through his schedule while being ill.
Besides promoting Dangerous on music shows, Eun Ji Won is currently active on MBC Come To Play, KBS 1N2D and SBS Inkigayo plus miscellanous appearances on other programs. The overlap in schedules plus not getting his illness treated resulted in Eun Ji Won fainting from fatique and having to be hospitalized. His schedules for 13th and 14th January have been cancelled with doctors recommending that Eun Ji Won should take a break now.
Meanwhile, due to an overwhelming response in applications from viewers to tour around Korea with the members of 1N2D, the production team have no choice but to delay their original plans which had been scheduled for early January. They expressed, “We are still finalizing the details. It’s quite a task to look through all the applications. But we are happy with the response.”
The 1N2D production team have been accepting applications from fans since 30th November of last year, and up till now, around 9,276 applications have been received, with more than 150,000 people (an application form can include more than 1 person) interested in touring Korea with the members of 1N2D. The majority of applicants were teenagers below the age of 20.
