Earlier, it was reported that T-ara member Jiyeon was absent from the September 27 recording for MBC’s “Show! Music Core” due to acute indigestion, for which she was taken to the hospital to receive treatment. However, it is now being said that she is also suffering from a fever and acute gastroenteritis.
On September 28, a representative of the group’s agency, Core Contents Media, revealed to MyDaily, “Jiyeon is currently resting after receiving treatment at a hospital. Because a fever/flu and acute gastroenteritis overlapped at the same time, her physical condition is not good. We will have to watch over her recovery process a bit more before determining if she will be able to go on stage at the scheduled Dream Concert performance.”
It has been said that Jiyeon was unable to attend the Dream Concert rehearsal due to the sudden deterioration of her health. It is still unknown whether or not she will be able to actually perform with the rest of her group members for the concert, as there have been no signs of improvement in her symptoms.
In the end, Jiyeon took to the stage for the Dream Concert despite her illness to keep her promise with her fans, according to reports. Get well soon, Jiyeon!
