THE BOYZ's Ju Haknyeon Diagnosed With Flu + To Sit Out Upcoming Japan Fan Concert

THE BOYZ’s Ju Haknyeon will temporarily sit out group activities for health reasons.

On January 20, THE BOYZ’s agency IST Entertainment released a statement on the group’s fan café to share an update on Ju Haknyeon’s health and announce his absence from their upcoming fan concert in Japan.

Earlier this week on January 18, IST Entertainment announced that Ju Haknyeon would be holding off on his departure to Japan instead of travelling with the group due to poor health. The agency added that as a precaution, Ju Haknyeon would rest and visit the hospital before rejoining the group.

Hello. This is IST Entertainment.

Following Ju Haknyeon’s visit to the hospital on January 18 due to poor condition, he was diagnosed with the flu and has been resting in order to recover.

As much as the artist himself had a strong will to be on stage, we tried our best to respect the artist’s doctor and check his condition up until the performance to proceed with him as he got better, but we judged that flying out and performing was still too much to handle for the artist’s health. Ultimately, we announce that [Ju Haknyeon] will not participate in ‘THE BOYZ FAN CON : THE B-ROAD IN JAPAN’ which is scheduled for this week.

We apologize for causing concern to fans with this sudden news and we ask for fans’ understanding of this decision that puts the artist’s health first.

We will carefully check Haknyeon’s condition and do our best so that he can recover as soon as possible.

Thank you.

THE BOYZ will hold their Japanese fan concert later this week on January 21 and 22.

Wishing Ju Haknyeon a quick recovery!
