On episode 80 of MBC‘s Real Men, which aired on November 16th, Kim Su Ro looked uncomfortable due to his knee. He went to get it checked out at the military medical facility, and the doctor told Kim Su Ro and the staff of Real Men that there is a possibility that hee has ruptured cartilage in his knee.
