MANILA, Philippines – NCT’s Haechan will not be participating in the K-pop group’s upcoming scheduled promotions and US tour due to health reasons, agency SM Entertainment announced.
In a Friday, January 6 statement, SM Entertainment said that Haechan has been experiencing “abnormal conditions” like heart palpitations, chest tightness, and more. He went to the hospital with his manager, and after the doctor’s examination, he was advised to seek treatment and rest.
“As Haechan’s health recovery is the most important, he will not participate in scheduled activities for the time being and plans to recover his health while resting,” the agency said. Haechan will be sitting out all activities starting next week, with the date of his return yet to be confirmed.
“We sincerely apologize to fans for causing concern and we ask for fans’ kind understanding that this is a decision made for Haechan’s health. We will do our best to work hard and support Haechan so that he can greet fans with a healthier image,” SM Entertainment added.
