Kinki Kids member Tsuyoshi Domoto was released from the hospital on July 4, Johnny's Entertainment stated.
Domoto had been hospitalized on June 27 for sudden sensorineural hearing loss, a condition characterized by an unexplained, rapid loss of hearing either all at once or over the course of several days.
Although he is leaving the hospital, Domoto has not made a full recovery. He will continue treatment for the condition for an undetermined amount of time.
Kinki Kids is celebrating its 20th anniversary; Domoto has been forced his celebratory activities on hold as he continues battling his sudden hearing loss.
Domoto's condition does not necessarily indicate that permanent hearing loss will occur; however, in severe case, permanent deafness is a possibility.
