What REALLY Happened to DOCTOR CHA: Spreading False Facts and Statements in Episode 7
So, what happened to Doctor Cha, and why patients accused them of spreading false facts and statements controversy?
The controversy began in Episode 7, where Doctor Cha portrayed a case of a patient with Crohn’s disease. It is a disease where a possible chronic inflammation may occur throughout the digestive system. The inflammation may happen in different parts of a person’s digestive system, from mouth to anus, depending on the degree of severity of the disease.
In Episode 7 of Doctor Cha, the patient was about to undergo a restoration surgery to repair his anus. And at the time, his family members went to him and harshly complained to the patient. They criticized the patient for not informing the family members about the disease. And that was mainly because the family was worried since the disease can be hereditary.
“How could you hide such a nasty disease all this time?a scene in Doctor Cha Episode 7.
I heard this disease can be hereditary.”
Due to these harsh remarks from his family, the patient lost his confidence and attempted suicide by jumping off the hospital’s rooftop.

For the record, Crohn’s disease is a rare illness that causes inflammation and irritation to a human’s digestive system. The main cause of this disease is still unknown, but researchers believe that it may happen due to an autoimmune reaction when a person’s immune system attacks healthy cells in the body.
The American National Library of Medicine describes Crohn’s disease hereditary system as unclear. That is because, according to its explanation in MedlinePlus, the inheritance patterns of this disease involve many genetic and environmental factors. However, the article also mentioned that 15% of the disease’s patients tend to cluster in families with first-degree relatives (parents/siblings).
Complaints from Crohn’s Disease Patients & Family Against the False Statements Controversy in Episode 7
Due to the controversy and false statements happening in Doctor Cha Episode 7, Crohn’s disease patients and their families began bombarding the Korean drama online bulletin board.
These patients and family members complained about the false information, stating that Crohn’s disease is not hereditary at all.
