Jackson Wang missed the finale episode of Idol Producer last Friday when he inexplicably passed out before the episode started filming. He was immediately rushed to the hospital and underwent different tests to find out what happened.
According to several media reports, Jackson passed out because of severe anemia, hyponatremia and hypokalemia. I know the words sound scary and confusing but basically, Jackson had low iron, sodium and potassium in his blood. Doctors believe this was brought about by overwork and exhaustion. I am not surprised because the 24-year-old Jackson has been busy recently and he allegedly flew 26 times last month!
In light of this, his agency, JYP Entertainment released a statement announcing that he won’t be joining a few GOT7’s media activities in the meantime, including the GOT7 event in Japan and may even be absent from the upcoming world tour.
He has since released a statement in his Weibo account to let his beloved fans know he’s getting better and I am glad that he is! I hope his quick recovery continues so we can see his back in full health.
