Bae Yong-joon back to hospital for treatment

Korea top star Bae Yong-joon will visit the hospital on Monday to receive treatment for overexhaustion, a representative for the actor said.

Bae's latest trip to the hospital comes in less than three weeks since September 19 when he collapsed from early stage sepsis believed to be caused by overwork and stress.

The 37-year-old actor had been advised to rest but left the hospital five days later to hold promotional events for his new book and the animation version of hit TV series "Winter Sonata" in South Korea and Japan.

An official at BOF Entertainment reassured that Bae is "not experiencing any symptoms different from the first time" and may have overstrained himself again attending the recent promotional events."He will concentrate on recovering his health now while undergoing tests and treatment," the official told Asia Economic Daily over the phone.

His agency had said earlier that doctors had told the actor was in need of absolute rest, citing his sharply low levels of blood-sugar and blood pressure.

Bae held an event to promote his photo essay "Discovering the Beauty of Korea" on September 22 in Seoul and then a week later in Tokyo. The previous day, he met with fans in Japan again at the Tokyo Dome with actress Choi Ji-woo to promote "Winter Story~ Another Story~" set to air on October 17.

He was set to stay in Japan till Sunday for additional photo shoots and meetings but cut short his visit and returned to Korea on Friday.
