Rottyful Sky was diagnosed with having a brain tumor last year. According to sources, she stopped all activities due to her illness. She was battling against her illness and a few months ago in July, she was seen attending Ki Sung Yueng and Han Hye Jin‘s wedding, looking like she gained some weight.
