Former “Produce X 101” Contestant Oh Sae Bom Reveals He’s Been Battling Cancer

Oh Sae Bom has revealed that he is currently undergoing treatment after being diagnosed with cancer.

On May 9, the singer and former “Produce X 101” contestant took to Instagram to share the news that he was diagnosed with malignant lymphoma, a type of blood cancer, back in January. According to Oh Sae Bom, he first developed symptoms of chronic fever and abnormal fatigue last year, but he “didn’t think too much” of it because he assumed he was merely overworked.

Oh Sae Bom also reassured fans that he recently completed his second round of chemotherapy and that he is “not in bad condition” right now, though he expects his condition to get worse in the future due to continued chemotherapy.

For the sake of his international fans, Oh Sae Bom posted the statement in multiple languages—and his full English statement is as follows:
