JB and Youngjae Also Down with the Flu, GOT7 to Temporarily Halt Activities


After Jr was diagnosed with the flu, JB and Youngjae also came down with the virus, leaving GOT7 no choice but to stop activities for the moment.

On January 28, JYP Entertainment announced that Jr, JB and Youngjae were recently diagnosed with the influenza virus.

Jr was the first one who showed symptoms and was not able to attend the recording for SBS MTV’s “The Show,” leaving only six members on stage.

Afterwards, the GOT7 members all visited the hospital for a check-up, which is when JB and Youngjae were diagnosed.

It was planned for GOT7 to promote their debut mini-album until the middle of next month. However, since three out of the seven members are sick, they will be temporarily stopping activities.

GOT7’s reps commented, “GOT7 is trying their best to recover right now and they have no choice but to rearrange their schedule.”

Meanwhile, GOT7 will be resting until February 1 and is planning on resuming activities through the SBS Lunar New Year special of “Inkigayo.”
