ASTRO’s Moonbin To Take Hiatus Due To Health Concerns
On November 12, Fantagio Music posted the following statement on ASTRO’s fan cafe:
Hello. This is Fantagio Music.
We thank [ASTRO’s fans] AROHA who are always giving ASTRO so much love, and we inform you that member Moonbin will be halting activities temporarily.
Recently while preparing for ASTRO’s comeback album, Moonbin felt something was wrong with his health so he visited the hospital and received a thorough examination. As it is the doctor’s opinion that he needs sufficient rest and treatment, it’s been decided that he will be halting group promotions temporarily.
Moonbin will be recovering his health and focusing on treatment while taking a rest for the time. Until Moonbin recovers his health, ASTRO will be carrying out activities such as ‘2019 ASTRO JAPAN FANPARTY’ as five members with MJ, JinJin, Cha Eun Woo, Rocky, and Sanha.
We ask for your understanding as he is halting his activities temporarily so that he can promote with better health in the future, and we promise to support Moonbin and do our best so that he can recover.
We apologize for causing concern to AROHA ahead of the comeback. We request that fans continue to show their sincere support for Moonbin and ASTRO.
ASTRO is currently preparing to release their sixth mini album “BLUE FLAME” on November 20. Their “2019 ASTRO JAPAN FANPARTY” will be held on November 15 and 16 in Kobe, Japan.
Get well soon, Moonbin!
