Mingi To Continue Hiatus During ATEEZ's Comeback, Agency Shares He Took Part In Recording Their New Album

ATEEZ’s agency has shared an update on member Mingi’s health as the group prepares for a comeback.

Mingi went on hiatus last November due to psychological anxiety, and he has been focusing on treatment. ATEEZ recently hinted at a comeback with a teaser photo shared along with the date of March 1, and KQ Entertainment announced on February 5 that Mingi will be remaining on hiatus during the group’s comeback. However, they shared that he took part in recording the songs for the album before he halted activities.

The statement is as follows:

This is KQ Entertainment.

First, we express our gratitude to [ATEEZ’s fans] ATINY for your love and interest in ATEEZ. We are writing to inform you about Mingi’s current condition, participation in the new album, and his activities.

Mingi halted his official activities last November and has been focusing on counseling treatment. He has been undergoing treatment while resting, and currently he is recovering a sense of psychological stability compared to when he halted activities. Therefore, ahead of the release of this album, we spoke to Mingi, his parents, and the psychology counselor about the state of his recovery and him resuming activities, and it was agreed that there has been much progress through the counseling treatment.

However, it was decided that he will focus a bit more on recovery as everyone agreed that him returning when his health is not completely recovered could also cause more worry in the long term for the ATEEZ members including Mingi and for ATINY.

Therefore, we ask for your understanding over the fact that for these promotions, ATEEZ will be promoting with seven members rather than as the full group with all eight members.

However, the recording for all the songs on the new album was finished before he halted activities, and so you will be able to hear Mingi’s voice in the songs.

We ask for ATINY’s support so that Mingi can return to activities in good health, and in the future we will share a notice regarding the status of his activities.

Thank you.
