On January 6, KST, SM Entertainment shared that NCT‘s Haechan will not participate in upcoming schedules for the foreseeable future following a hospital visit for heart palpitations, discomfort, and more.
We would like to let the fans know about Haechan’s health situation and his inability to participate in his schedules. Haechan has recently experienced symptoms of increased heart rate, feelings of irritating discomfort, and more. He went to the hospital with his manager to get consulted and examined, and the doctor recommended that he receive treatment and rest.
As Haechan’s recovery is the most important, we are planning to not have him participate in schedules for the time being and focus on recovering his health through rest.
Haechan has decided to not participate in the schedules starting next week, and we will let you know when we confirm to resume his schedules later on. We want to relay his sincere apology for worrying the fans, and we ask for the fans to understand that this was a decision made for Haechan’s health.
Our company will do our best to support Haechan so that he can meet his fans again when he’s healthier.
