Earlier, Lee Je-hoon was assigned to host the opening ceremony of the 28th Busan International Film Festival alongside Park Eun-bin, but he had to withdraw from the event due to health reasons. As it turns out, the night before, he underwent emergency surgery for ischemic colitis at a hospital in Seoul.
On October 2nd, Lee Je-hoon’s agency told OSEN, “Lee Je-hoon went to the hospital last night due to sudden abdominal pain and felt something wrong with his colon. He was diagnosed with ischemic colitis. He underwent emergency surgery until dawn, fortunately the surgery went well.”
At that time, Lee Je-hoon also had to halt the filming of MBC’s drama ‘Chief Inspector: The Beginning,’ scheduled to air next year.
