“Record of Youth” star Park So Dam has been diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. Her agency, Artist Company, issued a statement Monday announcing that the actress would no longer be joining promotions for her upcoming film “Special Delivery,” as she needs to focus on her recovery following her surgery.

“Actress Park So Dam was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer from her regular health examination, and she completed surgery following the doctor’s recommendation,” the statement read. “As the long-awaited ‘Special Delivery’ is soon premiering, actress Park So Dam is very disappointed that she cannot be together with fans who have waited and shown support.”

While So Dam cannot participate in the promotions for her movie, she will continue to cheer on the “Special Delivery” premiere, the agency added. “We once again express gratitude to the ‘Special Delivery’ actors and production team who are also overcoming a difficult situation together with everyone who supports ‘Special Delivery’ and actress Park So Dam,” the statement continues.

According to her agency, So Dam will continue to focus on her recovery so she could greet her fans in good health in the future. “Her agency Artist Company” will do our best for the actress to recover her health. Thank you,” the statement concluded.

“Special Delivery,” which opens in theaters on Jan. 12, is a crime-action movie starring So Dam as talented driver Eun Ha. As per the synopsis of the film, she has a 100% success rate when it comes to making special deliveries, but things take a different turn when she finds herself taking on human cargo in the form of a young boy named Seo Won.

“The upcoming movie will follow Eun Ha and Seo Won as they flee for their lives while being chased by Kyung Pil, a corrupt police officer who moonlights as a gangster,” the synopsis read.

The newly released poster for the upcoming film features So Dam’s character as she skillfully engages in a high-stake chase with the antagonist, who blocks her path with a gun.

“She’s put everything on the line for a non-returnable special delivery,” the caption of the poster read.
