Taiwanese actor Kai Ko has revealed that he would be undergoing surgery to remove a tumor inside his brain.

According to Jayne Stars, the 2011 Golden Horse Awards Best New Actor winner for “You are the Apple of My Eye” said that it would be a minor surgery and fans have nothing to worry about during a promotional event in Hong Kong recently.

“There is a little toy in here!” said 20-year-old Ko, who revealed that he had found out about the growth at the back of his brain last year.

“I’m afraid that it will hurt!” Ko added. Although the post-surgery effects are unknown, but he is optimistic that he would be able to get back to work by July or August.

When asked about who would accompany him to the hospital, Ko cleverly replied:

“That’s a big trap! Of course, my parents!”, as he evaded a question about his ‘open’ relationship with singer Elva Hsiao, who is 12 years his senior.
