[Lily's Take] Han Ye-seul Spotted at the Hospital for Treatment

2018/04/29 | Permalink | Source

On April 29th, a news program aired an episode focusing exclusively on actress Han Ye-seul's recent medical accident.

Earlier this month, Han Ye-seul had a lipoma surgery on her side that went wrong. A couple weeks after her initial surgery, she experienced severe infection and scarring on her wound and had not received an official apology or compensation from the hospital. Such frustration led her to post an image of the surgical scar and infection on Instagram with a short message explaining this terrible accident.

After her posts went viral, the hospital then released an official statement, albeit quite late. People are already furious with this unfortunate event and began boycotting the hospital.

TV Chosun news program reporter visited the hospital and held a short interview with the doctor who performed the surgery on Han Ye-seul. He shared, "Once I noticed my mistake, I was already through. After the surgery, I spent every night in panic. Because of my surgery, I damaged this person. I've said "I'm so sorry" to Han Ye-seul many a times and even recorded my apologies. As the patient come to this hospital for the treatment, it must've been harsh on her but I was also suffering as well as I couldn't sleep at night for a long time. I'm just hoping that the aftercare goes well".

Regarding this accident, an anonymous doctor also shared his views. "The accident happened because she was a special patient and he was trying to go the extra mile. We call that the VIP syndrome".

Actress Han Ye-seul was spotted by TV Chosun as she was exiting the hospital from her treatment session. When the reporter asked her on whether she received her promised compensation from the hospital, her manager answered briefly, "No". As the reporter told the actress that the fans are worried and there's been a national petition filed in behalf of her, she commented "Thank You" quickly left.

After the news was aired, many netizens were frustrated at how irresponsible the doctor is and for his poor excuses and self-defense instead of a mature, sincere apology.
