Yim Jae-beom posted news about his sick wife in his fan caf in 2011.
He said, “My wife Song Nam-yeong was diagnosed with thyroid cancer around our 10th wedding anniversary. The cancer cells in her thyroid were removed but the cells had spread to her liver and stomach. As her husband, I am going through a difficult time watching her suffer”.
Song graduated Seoul University of Arts Department of Theater and performed in “Queen Myeong Seong”, “Hard Rock Caf” and more.
Yim Jae-beom hasn’t been active lately taking care of his sick wife. He appeared in “I Am A Singer” to make money for his wife’s medical care.
