Dalmatian’s Inati & MC Mong’s tear-jerking friendship receives press
On the upcoming September 1st, 6-member male idol group Dalmatian will be releasing their first digital single ROUND 1 as member INATI has gained attention through his deep friendship with MC Mong.
Approximately 10 years ago, Inati was a member with MC Mong in the hip hop group ‘People Crew’ and in April 2004, he practiced to feature in MC Mong’s 1st solo album but was rushed to the hospital due to severe aches in his head.
In receiving the news that he was diagnosed with a rare type of brain hemorrhage, he fell into a coma and in the words of the doctor, it would have been hard for Inati to wake up, leaving his close ones sad.
MC Mong, who spent time with Inati in the practice room, visited the hospital as he cried while saying “Please wake up. If you wake up, I promise to make an album in your name.” He spent nights nursing him as he even paid for the treatment fees, showing his care for him.
With intensive care from MC Mong and close ones, Inati miraculously woke up after two months of hardships and has restored completely after constant check-ups and treatments after 5 years.
MC Mong, who heard of Inati’s treatments being completed, decided to set him as the center of 6 members and began to go into producing. This was to keep his promise to Inati 6 years ago.
Dalmatian’s Inati said, “MC Mong was the person who held my hand in the turning point of my life. Before being my sunbae in the industry, he’s like a parent figure to me. He truly watched over me and taught me many things whilst being beside me. I will do my best in return of paying back the gratitude.”
MC Mong’s company, IS Entermedia Group, said, “We will finally be revealing the new 6-member idol group Dalmatian with Inati set as the center in September of 2010 as we have finished the continuous music production. MC Mong poured everything into producing Dalmatian’s album producing. You could anticipate it.”
