There is a rumor saying that Cube Entertainment‘s CEO, Hong Seung Sung, suffers from a disease called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, better known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
A source close to CEO Hong stated that the Lou Gehrig’s Disease rumors are true. The CEO was diagnosed with a possibility of having ALS last year, when he visited famous large hospitals in Seoul, however he did not treat it seriously. But when Cube Entertainment’s artists went to North America to perform, he decided to visit a hospital in the United States, where he was confirmed to have Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
However, Cube Entertainment’s representatives denied the rumors, saying: ‘The CEO is not well right now, but he’s not suffering from a fatal disease such as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, or even cancer as the rumors say.’
They also stated: ‘He comes to the office on time and works actively.’
ALS is a disease that effects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. There is no cure for the disease as for now.
