[스포츠서울 | 안은재기자]Choi Seong-bong, who was caught up in suspicion of a fake cancer fight, caused a scandal with a live broadcast suggesting an extreme choice, and firefighters were dispatched to the scene.
On the afternoon of the 12th, Choi Seongbong made a complicated expression while looking down at the camera without saying anything through a YouTube live broadcast. All around you could hear the sound of the wind blowing and the sound of cars passing by.
Seongbong Choi opened his mouth saying, “I’ll be fine.” He continued, “I’m sorry for causing a controversy with a recent issue. Tobacco and alcohol are all permitted. I felt a lot of urge as I suffered from a lot of malicious comments.”
“Thank you to everyone who has helped me so far,” he said. Rather than saying many words, I will carry all the words that have been poured out.” He also said, “I have struggled since I was young, but now I am tired and I can’t do it. I’ve been working really hard,” he said.
Several fans watching the live action reported his sudden action to the firefighters, and the firefighters came to stop him and ended the live broadcast.
Choi Seong-bong claimed that he was recently battling stage 3 colorectal cancer and that the cancer had metastasized to the lungs and prostate, and he was living a limited life. However, YouTuber Lee Jin-ho raised the suspicion of a fake cancer fight. Lee Jin-ho said that as a result of interviewing Mr. A, a woman who had a drinking party with Choi Seong-bong, he was drinking and smoking, and he seemed far from the end of his life.
Meanwhile, Choi Seong-bong made his debut as a singer by winning runner-up in ‘Korea’s Got Talent’ in 2011.
