Hyundai Group founder and former honorary chairman Chung Ju-Yung was hospitalized at Seoul Joongang Hospital on August 6, just one day after he was released from the hospital, according to Hyundai officials.

It was his fourth hospitalization since his visit to North Korea last June, so there is speculation that he is in a critical state of health.

Chung Mong-Joon, his sixth son and adviser for Hyundai Heavy Industries, accompanied the elder Chung to the hospital.

Chung was hospitalized on August 3 due to a lack of appetite and loss of vigor, and he was released on August 5.
