Hyun Joong: Rushed to hospital due to overdose of sleeping pills


Hyun Joong was rushed to the emergency room due to a sleeping pill overdose.

According to news reports, Hyun Joong had taken an overdose of sleeping pills on the 16th and had fainted. His manager then rushed him to the Samsung Medical Center in Seoul.

An official from Hyun Joong's agency said that Hyun Joong usually takes sleeping pills due to his insomnia. He had taken the pills as usual on the 15th but as they had no effect, he had then overdosed on them which resulted in him falling into a deep sleep. His sleep was almost comatose like as he couldn't be woken up and was then rushed to the hospital emergency room.

Hyun Joong was released from the hospital after receiving emergency treatment, his condition now stable. He is resting at home as he did not need to be hospitalized.

However, the news of him being rushed to the emergency room alarmed his fans, who are now praying for his quick recovery.

Seeing that many celebrities have committed suicide recently, the ridiculous rumors started spreading that Hyun Joong's sleeping pills overdose was seen as an attempted suicide, worrying his fans further.

I bet with the hectic schedule of being in an idol group, the body can over into overdrive hence resulting in insomia. Maybe Hwang Bo can suggested something more therapeutic like lavender oil lamps or camomile tea to induce sleep.

Hopefully, this will result in strengthening their relationship when Hwang Bo will come and care for him.

They won that good piece of meat for the Chuseok special. Should put into a good use and make him something nutrious.

HyunJoong , have a hotbath , then drink warm milk and banana before going to sleep ....I heard these are good measures for inducing sleep at night ... don't take sleeping pills if possible , they could really harm the body when taken in large quantities !
Thanks for the daily updates about HJ and HB , chonsa ... I'm so addicted to your blogs !

I read another report that he went to the hospital himself because he did not feel well. He went home after a jab and some medicine. So it is not serious if this is true. Even HB posted at her website that she is bored. This showed that HJ should be OK.

Coolsmurf reports that Hyun Joong never fainted nor was rushed to hospital, he checked himself in after feeling nauseous. The Korean media is just trying to make it sound like a suicide attempt. :( I hope he feels better quickly!! :)

As I have said on Soompi, it's not a suicide attempt!!! If it was, he'll be in the hospital for at least a day... They need to monitor him for the drug and the treatment. If it's something serious, they need to give him a counter-drug and monitor his levels at various intervals. If it was something mild, like this time, they'll probably give him a bit of saline and that's about it.
