Actress Park So-dam is being treated for thyroid cancer, forcing her to take a rest from work ahead of the release of her new film.
Park's agency said on Monday that she recently underwent an operation after being diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer during a regular health check. This will prevent her from engaging in promotional activities for the upcoming crime caper "Special Delivery," it added.
The film marks her first big-screen lead role after she garnered global attention for her appearance in director Bong Joon-ho's multi-Oscar-winning film "Parasite."
The agency said she is very disappointed that she will not have the opportunity to meet fans who have supported her and waited for her return. She will focus on her recovery for the time being.
The film is scheduled for release on Jan. 12 next year.
