Recently, Pledis Entertainment released an official statement online revealing that SEVENTEEN’s Seungkwan would not be promoting with the group for the time being due to health issues. Below is the English statement released online.
Hello. This is PLEDIS Entertainment.
We would like to provide you with some information regarding SEVENTEEN member SEUNGKWAN’ future activities. SEUNGKWAN recently visited the hospital due to feeling unwell, and the medical staff advised him to take the necessary time to rest and recover.
The artist himself is determined to continue his activities, however the company felt that it would be better for him to focus on improving his health for the time being, as recommended by the medical staff.
Consequently, SEUNGKWAN, unfortunately will not be able to take part in upcoming events such as the Tencent Music Entertainment Award (TMEA) 2023, fan-signing event in China, and SEVENTEEN TOUR ‘FOLLOW’ TO SEOUL, among others. We would like to apologize to our fans and ask for your generous understanding. We will do our very best to support SEUNGKWAN so that he can meet his fans as his healthiest self again.
