2 more MediaCorp stars hit by health problems
Two more local artistes have been hit with heath problems — actresses Pan Ling Ling and Huang Biren have reportedly pulled out of dramas due to a tumour and cyst.
Just last Sunday (May 12), veteran actor Dai Peng passed away with lymphoma, a type of blood cancer, at the age of 75. Another MediaCorp veteran, Huang Wenyong, had also passed away earlier of the same cancer at 60 years of age.
According to a Shin Min Daily report, local artiste Pan Ling Ling is on a long medical leave that will last two to three months after a surgery to remove a tumour in her breast, while fellow actress Huang Biren is suffering from a painful 10cm cyst in the kidney.
Pan Ling Ling was hospitalised after undergoing a surgery procedure to remove a tumour in her breast. She is currently on a long medical leave of two to three months in order to recuperate. Her role in an upcoming drama, Sudden (骤变), which is scheduled to air in September, has been given Constance Song instead.
The report also states that Huang Biren has pulled out of The Journey: A Voyage (唐山到南洋), an end-of-year blockbuster drama scheduled for November, due to a painful 10cm cyst in her kidney.

Pan Lingling is one of my mom’s favorite actress whom she feels has been underrated for a long time until recently and she thinks that she is one of the prettiest actresses there who has natural beauty. So my mom has pretty happy to see PLL acting in more shows, but ah just told my mom about her condition and she was like..
Well. Everyone’s getting old. That’s why when you get older – health is most important.
Meanwhile Huang Biren to me is a really good actress and I remember her standout role (to me) as Monica in 三个半女人 and Fan Ke Lian in 九层糕 back in the days when I actually watched TV. Hehe
Anyway, hope that they will recover individually soon and all goes well!
