FNC Entertainment Releases Official Statement After Video Of AOA’s Seolhyun Looking Ill On Stage
On December 15, FNC Entertainment released a statement about AOA’s Seolhyun’s health.
The statement read, “During the performance at the Fortnite Korea Open 2018 today, Seolhyun felt dizzy because of the smoke and gunpowder that was used on stage. She was taken to the hospital right away and received treatment. She is currently at home resting.”
The agency continued, “We will be more careful about the AOA members’ health in future. We apologize for causing fans concern.”
The statement was in response to a fan-taken video of AOA’s Seolhyun looking ill on stage. Near the end of AOA’s set list, she was spotted retching several times. After the performance of “Like a Cat,” Seolhyun seemed unable to get up from her kneeling position without the other members’ help. Along with help from the staff, she left the stage and AOA performed “Heart Attack,” their last song of the event, without her.
At the time, fans at the event speculated that Seolhyun might have caught a cold due to the weather and AOA’s stage outfits.
