It was revealed that actor Shin Dong Wook is suffering from rare disease called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome / Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (CRPS).
Recently, one fan shared a post titled, ‘Please read – Actor Shin Dong Wook suffering from a rare disease’, on an online forum. The post stated: ‘It was recently found that Shin Dong Wook is suffering from an incurable disease called CRPS. I wish to remember him.’
The actor enlisted in the army back in July 20th of 2011 but he suddenly collapsed while coming out of the training camp. During the treatment, it was discovered that he suffers from CRPS. Few days later he was discharged from the army.
