WS Entertainment, Baek Ji Young’s label, announced that the singer is scheduled for an operation to remove a cyst in her vocal cord on February 4.
“There were so many things Baek Ji Young considered because her trademark husky voice may change due to the operation. However, if the cyst is not removed, something worse could happen and there’s a possibility that she will lose her voice. That was finally why she decided to continue with the operation,” a WS Entertainment personnel said.
After the operation, Baek Ji Young would have to rest for 3 to 6 months. If she recovers well, there is a possibility that she will make a comeback with her 7th album this Fall.
