SM Entertainment has announced to the local media that SHINee member Onew recently underwent surgery for removal of vocal polyps and vocal fold mucosa reconstruction on June 3 and is currently recovering. He was released from the hospital and is resting at home. SM Entertainment elaborated, “There is no effect on his daily life, and he is receiving treatment as an outpatient.”
Due to this surgery and recovery, Onew was unable to join the rest of the SHINee member when they left for Brazil on June 5 to film for KBS’ “Music Bank,” as well as being unable to join the musical “Singin’ in the Rain” as originally planned.
Wishing Onew a smooth recovery!
