They finished off the day with a seafood dinner. When steamed shrimp appeared, everyone cheered and started eating, but Kim Jong Kook didnt touch the dish.

He explained, I have gout. Its because I ate too much protein while I was exercising and all. Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis where joints experience pain and swell up because of uric acid crystallizing and depositing. Sudden attacks of severe pain can occur as well.

He said, I suffered for 2 years because I didnt realize that it was gout. I just thought I hurt myself. The doctor misdiagnosed it, so I didnt know it was gout. They only measured the uric acid levels and said it wasnt gout, but apparently you can get gout from high cholesterol as well.
