Tiger JK Reveals He Is Battling Myelitis Again
Tiger JK has revealed that he is once again battling myelitis, inflammation of the spinal cord.
On April 11, Tiger JK uploaded a photo to his Instagram with a picture of himself in hospital clothing along with a caption that reads, “Recurrence of myelitis. Left thigh paralysis, digestive disorders. The battle that has begun again. From now on, only positivity and love can remain in my body and mind. But because I’m a rapper, I can have facial hair and meter,” adding a laughing emoji at the end after having written his caption with rhythm as if it were rap lyrics. In English, he added, “Smile because it’s necessary.”
Myelitis is inflammation of the spinal cord that disrupts nerve signals. It can lead to paralysis, sensory loss, and permanent disability. Tiger JK was previously diagnosed with myelitis in 2006. Although it was a difficult battle, he stayed strong with Yoon Mi Rae, his girlfriend at the time, by his side to support him. Although his condition had improved, he is once again battling for his health.
Wishing Tiger JK a speedy recovery!
