Jeff Benjamin, a Billboard K-Pop columnist who frequently posts spoilers on his Twitter account, revealed that B.I is “doing well”.

Only a few hours later, one of B.I’s main fan accounts in China, Hanbinbar, updated fellow fans that he received their late birthday gift of new recording equipment.
He apparently used the gift to produce music again, as the fanclub shared how he damaged it “in the process of making music”.
B.I personally contacted the equipment dealer who gave him a new model in return.
iKONICS were understandably excited at the updates.

This is the first real update about his post-idol life.
