Overworked singer needs a break
by | September 14, 2008 | 12 Comments

“I’ll return after taking a break for a while.”

Clazziquai vocalist Alex is putting a halt to most of his broadcast appearances, he explained.

He’s been worn out from overwork — promoting his solo album, appearing on MBC’s We Got Married, radio DJ-ing, and doing Mnet’s M Countdown program, among others. Now all that stress is being exacerbated by recent pains to a disc in his back, and the bodily injury comes as a sign that he’s reached a limit. With the exception of his “fixed program” schedule, the busy MC host/radio DJ/singer/sometime actor won’t be doing any other television work for a while.

According to Alex’s rep, he’ll only be working on a performance planned for the end of September in Pusan, and return to television after he’s received some medical treatment and plenty of rest. (Thank goodness someone has the sense to stop before serious injury rather than waiting till they collapse like so many others.)

    Ahh….this explains why he didn’t participate in the “wrestling” part of WGM Chuseok special. Poor guy! I know what it feels like to be stressed out like that though. Instead of the back, I actually suffered inflamed chest bone!

    Pimping ain’t easy!!! Just ask Alex. . .

    Recent Entertainment Relay interview with Alex says that new Clazzi will be coming out soon. Slipped disc or not, he’s just like his role model Fiddy, he don’t walk wit a limp.
