In SBS’s The Laws of the Jungle episode aired on September 16, cast member 2AM’s Jung Jin Woon sat down for an interview before heading off to Madagascar. Known for his cheerful demeanor, Jung Jin Woon candidly revealed his battle with depression.
“I fell into a slump at one point. It came around 2 to 3 years ago after coming back from our America tour and I developed symptoms similar to depression. I couldn’t sleep for a month and I just wanted to be left alone.”
He stated that music helped him fight through his depression.
Wow, it’s nice to hear an idol talk so openly about a struggle like this. I’m so used to emotional issues being swept under the rug that it’s really refreshing that Jinwoon is being so candid. Hopefully fans will see this story and gain some strength from his successful recovery.
