Aaron Yan’s Leg Muscles May Atrophy Without Third Surgery

Due to a torn ligament, Aaron Yan (炎亞綸) of Taiwanese boy band Fahrenheit, has to undergo knee surgery for the third time this year, to prevent his right leg muscles from atrophying. After his surgery, there is even a slight chance that the basketball-loving 28-year-old may not be able to play sports again.

In 2006, Aaron sustained a knee injury while making the music video for “I Have My Youth” <我有我的 Young>. After tearing his ligament again one year later, he received another surgery. Aaron has been seen in and out of the hospital for medical checkups often.

In a recent medical checkup, doctors found that Aaron’s right leg muscles around the knee have already atrophied 2 centimeters. Without another surgery, the condition will only deteriorate. Busy with Fahrenheit’s promotional events in the past, Aaron has learnt his lesson not to postpone health ailments.

Aaron now spends 2 hours every day at the rehabilitation center. Aaron said,“After surgery the first two times, I did not let my knee fully recuperate. Now I have to be hardworking in my rehabilitation exercises. Not only that, I also avoid spicy food.”

At the same time, Aaron would try to strengthen his core muscles through the use of yoga to take the burden off his knee. Aaron is so dedicated towards his health that he even brought along his yoga equipment when he travels for overseas promotions. He also carries a medical ice bucket to ice his injury at anytime. Aaron joked, “The hotel is shocked at the amount of ice I requested because I use up a large amount of ice each time!”

In other news, Aaron who is a regular at the variety show, One Million Primary School <百萬小學堂>, has shown excellent results. Aaron claimed it was not intelligence, but rather instinct which has helped him ace the questions. Aaron said, “When I was taking the university entrance examination, I have relied wholly on my instinct. I do not have to strategize to do well!”

  1. OMG, 28 years old already and really if i didn’t know better that he was from Fahrenheit, I would totally mistake him for a girl? haha..LOL…

  2. He needs to rest properly and just not work till its healed. It’s not worth the permanent damage in the future!

  3. Korean singers wear way too much makeup! Their parents probably dont even recognize them without upmake! 🙂

  4. He is still young but already has so many health problems. Health is always number 1 since all of the money in the world cannot buy back your health. Luckily his father is a doctor so maybe helps him with health related stuff.

  5. Holy cow I barely even recognize him anymore….he looks so Korean now lol

    1. He always look fake on photos lately. But, I’ve just finished watching ‘Love Buffet’ and he looks ok in it. Not fake like in the photos.

      1. I did not like Love Buffet at all. The storyline was so repetitive and Reen Yu’s character really annoyed me. I can’t believe that Aaron and Calvin were fighting over her??? She caused Calvin to hit Aaron too. Gosh, I hated her character and series was not good at all…

      2. Photos don’t always indicate how a person really looks. You need to see them in person or at least on screen to see a more real them…

      3. Yes, I agree that ‘Love Buffet’ is pretty repetitive. But, I don’t dislike the main girl, Xiao Feng. She’s a nice girl. I see all 3 main characters as going through a journey of learning about love and understanding their heart. All 3 have things they need to learn and all 3 have flaws.

        Xiao Feng – I believe her ‘romance’ with Ah Yi and Da Ye are her first experience in love. She’s has a lot of ideals about love with might be right or wrong. I feel that she’s a bit unfair to Ah Yi when she said Ah Yi confused sympathy with love. I feels really sorry for Ah Yi. He did make effort. But, Xiao Feng herself is also confuse.

        Ah Yi – Xiao Feng might be unfair to Ah Yi, but, he did need the break up to sort out his own feeling towards Ying Zi and let go of her. So, the problem with Xiao Feng is good for him. It’s only too bad that his timing is off. When he finally understands his own heart, Xiao Feng already started with Da Ye.

        Da Ye – he need to learn with is really mean to be in love. Da Ye also have flaws. He wouldn’t mind Xiao Feng’s heart still have Ah Yi. But, when Xiao Feng really did show her concern for Ah Yi, he cannot take it. He is also wrong to want to make Xiao Feng forget about Ah Yi. Ah Yi will always be part of Xiao Feng’s life, someone she cherished. But, at last, he understands that Ah Yi is also important to him. I think he won on timing.

  6. Why is Arron’s torn ligament problem so serious? It’s been 6 years and he’s still troubled by this problem.

    Sportsmen tear their ligament often, but, they can heal quickly and play another game later. But, Arron’s been bug by this leg problem for years. Why?

    1. I am guessing maybe his problem is more serious???

    2. dodgy surgeon?
      or he never took time off to fully heal from previous surgery?

      dunno, but hope its not from a bigger underlying problem….he’s still so young!
