It has been announced that Kim Heechul will not be participating in Super Junior’s upcoming music show performances.
Label SJ released a statement on Super Junior’s official homepage that read, “Due to health concerns, Kim Heechul will not be able to participate in music show appearances for Super Junior’s 8th repackaged album ‘Replay,’ which will be released on April 12.”
They continued to add, “However, he will participate in all promotional activities other than music show performances. This decision was made as we place our artists’ health above all else, so we ask for your understanding. Therefore, ‘Lo Siento’ will be performed by Leeteuk, Yesung, Shindong, Eunhyuk, Donghae, and Choi Siwon.”
Last October, Kim Heechul took to social media to personally open up about his health ahead of Super Junior’s November comeback. He has been receiving continued treatment for chronic pain since 2006, when he underwent surgery after fracturing his leg in a car accident.
