The news had particularly noted the unfortunate fact that he would not be attending the NCT NATION: To The World concert, as well as NCT 127’s own tour NEO CITY: THE UNITY, making his recent appearance all the more impactful.

With this, he will suspend all schedules for the time being to concentrate on treatment and recovery.

Taeil’s condition post-accident was a cause of concern for NCTzens, the group’s dedicated fanbase, who have been sending their well-wishes and hoping for his speedy recovery. His communication a few weeks after the accident was a balm to worried hearts, as he reassured fans of his successful surgery and ongoing treatment while also expressing his regret at not being able to perform.

 I made you worry, didn’t I? T.T I wanted to perform the ballads at least, but I couldn’t. I’m sorry. T.T

For weeks, the silence from Taeil’s end left many wondering about his recuperation. However, the air of anticipation turned to one of joy when Taeil appeared on stage, supported by crutches, at the group’s final concert in their home country. The appearance was unannounced, a well-kept secret that turned the evening into a happy surprise.

Though he seemed to struggle with his crutches, Taeil remained on stage with his members to greet the fans after so long.

He even participated in the performance of “Touch,” a hit song known for its upbeat and lively melody.

Despite his injury, Taeil’s presence was a testament to his dedication to NCT and their fans.

Moreover, Taeil’s appearance was a precursor to more good news as he mentioned the group’s upcoming winter album, sparking excitement about what’s to come.

The anticipation for the album is now coupled with the hope of seeing Taeil return to full health and taking his place on stage, not on crutches, but with the same powerful vocals that have become his hallmark.
