ATEEZ’s Agency Announces Mingi’s Official Return From Hiatus
On July 18, ATEEZ’s agency announced that the group would again be active as eight members.
In November 2020, ATEEZ’s Mingi took a break from activities due to symptoms of psychological anxiety. He continued his hiatus during ATEEZ’s comeback promotions in March 2021, although he participated in the album recording. He also participated in the recording of ATEEZ’s new song for Mnet’s “Kingdom: Legendary War,” although he did not appear on the show itself. Earlier this month, he shared his first Twitter post since he went on hiatus.
The new statement from ATEEZ’s agency reads:
Hello, this is KQ Entertainment.
We would like to inform you about the health status and return of ATEEZ member Mingi.
Through counseling therapy, taking a long period of rest, and his own efforts, Mingi has regained his health. In order to check his mental and physical health, he participated in several work activities in the first half of 2021 prior to his official return to the team.
After checking his health status and having several discussions with Mingi, his parents, and his psychological counselor, we received the final verdict from his counselor that he could return to work without diffficulties.
From this point on, ATEEZ will be active as a full group of eight members, and we will keep you informed of any changes that might be made to the existing schedule.
We’d like to thank ATINYs who have waited for Mingi and sent him your unwavering support once again.
