JYP Announces Stray Kids’ Hyunjin Will Be Returning To Activities In July
On June 26 at midnight KST, Stray Kids surprised fans by releasing their new mixtape single “OH,” which featured all eight members of the group—including Hyunjin, who had been on a hiatus from group activities since February.
Later that morning, JYP Entertainment stated, “During his break from activities, Hyunjin has reflected on himself while donating and participating in volunteer work.”
The agency went on to announce, “Starting from July, Hyunjin will be rejoining Stray Kids’ scheduled activities, and he plans to show an even more upstanding attitude and mature mindset during his promotions.”
In February of this year, Hyunjin temporarily halted all activities after one of his middle school classmates posted on an online community accusing him of having verbally abused them during their school days. According to JYP Entertainment, after Hyunjin met with and apologized to his accuser in person, the two former classmates resolved their misunderstandings and are now “cheering on one another’s futures.”
