This morning, Chungha said she was experiencing abdominal pain, so she got a check-up at the hospital. Upon examination, it was confirmed that the pain was due to enteritis.
As a result, Chungha’s upcoming activities have been canceled, and per the doctor’s advice, Chungha will be focusing on treatment and rest until she is fully recovered.

According to the source, Chungha had complained of abdominal pain for several days. Eventually she was unable to complete her schedule as planned and was admitted to the hospital for treatment.
Shortly after the reports, a source from Chungha’s agency told TVReport, “She has complained of abdominal pain since yesterday. Today her condition was not good so she went to the hospital.”
The agency source continued, “She has undergone an examination and is waiting for the results. We will adjust the schedule based on the diagnosis.”
