However, Jaejoong didn’t receive treatment for it and ended up letting the infection worsen.

Further stating that the infection grew worse of alcohol intake, as Jaejoong has attended parties after their performances. After receiving treatment for the infection, it was also confirmed that Jaejoong’s right arm has retained a scar.
The agency further confirms that, “He has big scars in two different parts of his arm. We believe the infection has not been completely eradicated just yet. He has to receive treatment for it again later.”
