“He′s been stressed these days, dealing with many things at the same time. In the end, he went to the emergency room and was diagonosed with the recurrence of his panic disorder," he said. "The detailed diagnosis will come out in the afternoon, but it seems like his symptoms may have returned for the first time in four or five years. He′s now sleeping after being prescribed sleeping pills."

“We thought he was cured of his panic disorder, but it recurred unexpectedly. It’s probably because he′s been under a lot of stress. He will temporarily stop all activities and go through treatment," the rep added.

Kim Jang Hoon had previously revealed that he′d been suffering from panic disorder since childhood. Lately, the singer has been at the center of attention with his participation in various social movements and charity organizations. Recently, he′s been most active in the movement to raise awareness of Korea′s ownership of the Dokdo islands, which is likely to have given him considerable stress.

Meanwhile, the singer was planning to release a photo collection to mark Dokdo Day on October 25, along with organizing various events, including a photo exhibition and Dokdo installation exhibition.
