According to her agency Artist Company, Parasite actress Park So-dam just underwent surgery for papillary thyroid cancer and is currently recuperating.
In a statement released today December 13 on her behalf, Artist Company announced that Park So-dam was diagnosed after a routine health check and already underwent surgery per her doctor’s recommendation. To allow her to fully concentrate on getting better, the actress will not be joining her cast mates as originally planned for the promotional tour of her upcoming flick “Special Delivery”. They added that although she is very disappointed that she is unable to join the fans who’ve waited and always supported her during the movie’s promotional activities, she continues to cheer for the movie’s successful premiere.
Artist Company expressed their thanks to everyone who supported Special Delivery and actress Park So-dam, including all the actors and the crew who are trying to get past this difficult situation together. They also committed to doing their best to help the actress reach full recovery.
