Cube Entertainment’s full statement is as follows:
Hello, this is Cube Entertainment.
BTOB member Peniel has temporarily halted his activities due to an ankle injury.
On the evening of August 10, Peniel injured his ankle while exercising, and he was taken to the hospital, where he received thorough examination and emergency treatment.
The results of his examination showed that he had ruptured his Achilles tendon, and the doctor’s opinion was that he needed surgery. Accordingly, he has decided to undergo surgery today (August 12).
As we believe that our artist’s health should be our top priority above all else, Peniel will inevitably be going on a temporary hiatus from activities, and we have decided that he will be focusing on recovering from his injury.
Therefore, we are letting you know that until Peniel’s ankle injury has healed, he will be taking a break from both BTOB’s group activities and his individual activities.
We apologize for giving fans and many others cause for concern. We will do our utmost to help Peniel recover.
Wishing Peniel the speediest of recoveries!
