ET-KING leader Itokin has been diagnosed with lung cancer, his agency has announced.
Specifically, Itokin was diagnosed with stage 4 lung adenocarcinoma, a malignant tumor which forms in the mucus-secreting glands of the lung.
Group members Koshiba KEN and Senkou were guests on the FM OH! radio program "OSAKA DEEP STREET ~Snack Daruma~" which recorded on August 17 and will broadcast on August 19. The two discussed Itokin's diagnose on the program.
"At first, when he confided in me, I didn't know what to say," Koshiba KEN said, adding that he was in shock.
ET-KING does not plan on calling it quits despite the diagnosis.
