aespa‘s NingNing revealed a shocking health condition, causing concern among fans.
On March 14th, NingNing of aespa revealed in an interview with fashion magazine ‘Vogue China’ what she carries around with her on a daily basis.
NingNing caught the eye of the public as she introduced the products she carries in a large bag she brought with her.
She explained that she carries eye drops with her because she has poor eyesight and can barely see out of her right eye, which she had surgery on when she was younger.
NingNing stated, “This is a secret, but I have poor eyesight in my right eye due to surgery when I was younger, so I carry eye drops to prevent my eyes from getting too dry.”
Netizens expressed concern with comments such as “I had no idea. There must be a lot of hidden effort,” and “If you have no vision in one eye, it can affect the other eye as well.”
According to foreign media, NingNing contracted ‘Acanthamoeba Keratitis’ when she was a trainee.
She returned to China for eye treatment, but her eyesight did not fully recover and has since deteriorated.
‘Acanthamoeba Keratitis’ is a disease caused by Acanthamoeba, a type of amoeba that lives in tap water or swimming pool water.
Although it is not a common disease, it can cause inflammation in the cornea, damage the cornea, reduce vision, and even lead to blindness.
Meanwhile, aespa, the group NingNing belongs to, will make a comeback in May. This is their first comeback in 10 months since the release of their mini 2nd album ‘Girls‘ in July last year.
Lee Sung-soo, the CEO of SM Entertainment, stated, “I will reveal the reason why aespa postponed their comeback. It has to do with Lee Soo-man’s real estate ambition, stubbornness, and producing.”
aespa also recently held their first solo concert since their debut on the 25th and 26th of last month at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Seoul.
