B1A4's Gongchan receives kidney surgery

Group B1A4’s member Gongchan received a kidney removal surgery today. (23rd)

According to Gongchan’s doctor “Gongchan’s diagnoses was an apriority narrowing of his kidney pelvis ureter in which one side of his kidney was not able to function and therefore received surgery.”

B1A4’s company WM Entertainment claimed “Gongchan was experiencing pains on his side during Baby Good Night promotions and was diagnosed with kidney problems when consulting with the doctor. However, his strong will to undergo surgery once the Baby Good Night promotions were over delayed his surgery. Whenever Gongchan would experience pains he would take pain killers and go on with his promotions with bright looks, making it unaware to fellow B1A4 members and fans. He also didn’t want the fans to worry so asked to keep information of the surgery quiet.”

Currently, Gongchan’s surgery has gone successfully and is recovering in the hospital. He will be hospitalized for a week.

Once he is out of the hospital there should be no problems with everyday life but will need to avoid promotions for the time being.

On the other hand, B1A4 finished their album promotions and will star in KBS JOY’s “B1A4’s Hello Baby” set to air on July 25th and hopes to show a different side to them.

I can't believe he went all this time without doing anything D:

Since he didn't even tell his group mates I'm under the impression the agency didn't know either. :/

Toddlers should be less taxing on the kidneys than promotions at least. Hopefully he can stay in the spotlight and rest at the same time. I heard that kidney problems usually heal well after surgery though... so best of luck.

If I had access to care no way would I wait that long :(

I hope he takes proper time to rest his body post surgery. ♥

FLIGHTB1A4's translation explains his condition better

“Gongchan’s kidney problem is in-born, and is due to one of his ureter being too narrow for his kidney to function properly. Hence we have decided on surgery to remove one of his kidneys.”

omg ))): sounds awful, but i'm amazed that he was willing to push it back for so long. my sis had some kidney troubles when she was younger and some days she didn't even get out of bed because it hurt so much ):

get well soon ♥!!
vagueclarity 23rd-Jul-2012 05:32 am (UTC)

MY POOR PUPPY. D: Ugh I felt so bad when I read this and I'm still upset about it. I hope he has a quick recovery and WM actually lets him rest while he's healing... although I'm irritated that he had to finish up promotions. He must've been on some quality pain killers to hide that from even his bandmates...

Jinyoung must be devastated that he didn't notice it or anything. D: UGH. POOR PUPPIES.

The boy must have been blaming himself for not noticing Gongchan suffering. Poor babies :'(
kanbinayume 23rd-Jul-2012 05:42 am (UTC)
oh my god. I hope he gets better soon!
gorgeouschino 23rd-Jul-2012 05:53 am (UTC)
I'm crying. Damn gongchan... Why did you do this to us. Thank god the surgery went well. But the fact that you endured the pain for the sake of promotion is really killing me. Please don't do something like this ever again. I love you so so so much.. Rest well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
aleexnews 23rd-Jul-2012 05:58 am (UTC)
jfc cant believe he waited that long ): poor bb hope he gets better soon.
age_ofconsent 23rd-Jul-2012 06:04 am (UTC)

song_jihyuk 23rd-Jul-2012 06:33 am (UTC)
omg :(
get well soon bb

WM's been pretty reasonable thus far about not over-working them, and I can easily believe that responsible Gongchan refused to hold up the parade by interrupting promotions. And if it is indeed a birth defect rather than a developed condition, as the other translation specifies, I can believe that it wasn't something suddenly devastating. It sounds like it was always a problem and just got aggravated by work. :( Nonetheless, it sucks that he was suffering in silence like that.

What about their weekly session where they talk about their FEELINGS? They're all sitting in a circle in the living room and the maknae is not speaking up about his UPCOMING SURGERY? This is the stuff of fanfic, y'all. Too much potential puppy angst to contemplate.

swhyeon1991 23rd-Jul-2012 07:33 am (UTC)

I had kidney problems when I was a kid, and even though I was in a hospital for about a week (with lots of trips to the doctor's after), I now only have a vague memory of how painful it was. But the fact is, it was painful. Didn't get surgery, but it was definitely serious. Channie!!! That's pretty serious stuff. Sad to hear that you had to tolerate it for as long as you did. Glad to know you'll be doing better now.

I am so glad that he's not like other idols who had to do dance training for long hours.... because he can't continue being like that with only 1 kidney :(
I hope the company will take care of him and not overwork him sobs
krissasaur 23rd-Jul-2012 11:57 am (UTC)
He can't? I have never been told anything about over exercising and I only have one kidney. :/
exo_cath 23rd-Jul-2012 08:53 am (UTC)
Get better soon Gongchan ♥♥ I can't believe he still did the performances despite the pain :/
xblackchristmas 23rd-Jul-2012 09:44 am (UTC)
he handled that pain like a man, but he's still a kid to me ):
goldynchickie 23rd-Jul-2012 10:31 am (UTC)
Awww Channie! My poor baby :'(

I hope he recovers soon.
falling_empress 23rd-Jul-2012 11:35 am (UTC)
Omg me and Channie are twins in sickness haha <3
brb moving up the bias list

i hope he gets REST and recovery; he deserves it having had to wait so long.
krissasaur 23rd-Jul-2012 11:54 am (UTC)
You are my twin too then!
krissasaur 23rd-Jul-2012 11:53 am (UTC)
Does anyone knwo which kidney it was? Left or right?
oppa_did_meanit 23rd-Jul-2012 06:43 pm (UTC)
I know this is going to sound mean, (but I only mean it in a curious way, seeing your comments on the last page) but does that make a difference? Does each kidney function differently? Bio was never my bag and blood and guts make me feel icky, I would never research this on my own...
