Actress Choo Ja-hyun has regained her health after enduring complications following the delivery of her baby.

She gave birth to her son last month, but had a tumultuous recovery after the delivery. News circulated that the actress had lost consciousness and was on oxygen support after she was re-admitted into a hospital.

However, concerns over her health were put to rest when she appeared on the TV program “Same Bed, Different Dreams 2: You Are My Destiny” with her husband, Yu Xiaoguang, on Monday.

“I’m not sure if it was because I’m an ‘old mother,’ but I had preeclampsia right after delivering the baby. I had cramps and lung problems. That hospital treated me well, and I got treatment at a bigger hospital after,” said Choo.

Despite these medical complications, the actress shared, “My body has experienced the pain and sacrifice it takes to be a mom. It’s not just me, but all the mothers around the world endure this pain and sacrifice; I just happened to experience it in a different way.”

She added that she was extremely grateful for the support she received from her husband, saying, “I finally feel like a real couple with my husband. Not because we finally have a child, but because of the hard times we went through together after he was born. I feel like we are a true family. … The power of love helped me recover.”
