Fans concerned about NCT127's Taeyong's health, advise him to take necessary rest
Since it was reported that NCT127’s Taeyong was dealing with severe back pain and had been facing hazardous consequences due to it, fans could not stop worrying about the idol. After hearing his confession that the pain had caused him paralysis in his legs, fans took to social media explaining that it was not a new pain but an accumulation of ignoring issues.
Fans have been discussing how on several occasions, NCT127’s Taeyong has been facing back pain for years, be it at a concert or during a practice session or coming out of the airport. Even while hanging out with the group, the idol needs more pillows to become comfortable with his posture.
On many occasions, while carrying out challenging tasks at variety shows or programs, Taeyong kept saying Aegyo (Korean expression for something that is uncomfortable or painful) as he had difficulty getting up because of his back injury and related issues.
In many instances, NCT127’s Taeyong has expressed that he wears a neck protector due to his old neck injury, and that idols have to wear it all the time because of continuous dancing practice and lack of rest. Fans want SM Entertainment to give the idol some time to recover and be free from overworking.
When NCT members appeared on the show, they revealed that GYM JONG KOOK is the first that they had selected to promote their newly repackaged album, Ay-Yo. The idol did many exercises and workouts on the show, and while he sometimes became exhuasted, he kept trying to measure his strength.
Upon asking if the members have volunteered to appear on the program, NCT127’s Taeyong replied that he had indeed volunteered, but explained that he had a really bad back. He further stated that it was so bad that he has been facing paralysis in his legs.
Upon hearing the serious issue, the Kim Jong-kook stated that when he was young, he was a part of a dance group and had often felt the same pain. However, he overcame it and could completely understand what Taeyong is dealing with. Jong-kook also told him that he had had many such experiences.
During the approximately 26-minute show, Kim Jong-kook went on to give detailed advice to the members, watching their form while they carried out their respectful workouts.
