SHINee’s Onew To Sit Out Upcoming Concerts And Comeback Activities For Health Reasons

Onew will not be participating in SHINee’s upcoming comeback promotions due to health concerns.

On June 9, SM Entertainment announced that Onew, who recently visited the hospital after experiencing health issues, would be following his doctor’s orders to get some medical care and proper rest. As a result, he will not be attending SHINee’s upcoming concerts and album activities, which will proceed solely with Key, Minho, and Taemin.

SM Entertainment’s full English statement is as follows:

Hello, this is SM Entertainment.

First of all, we express our sincere gratitude toward all fans who love and support SHINee.

We would like to inform you about the health condition of Onew and his participation in future events.

In celebration of SHINee’s 15th anniversary, the group held a fan meeting in May and has been preparing for their June concert as soon as they finished working on their 8th album’s release.

Recently, Onew visited the hospital after experiencing health issues and has since received medical examination and consultation. And it’s been advised that Onew will be needing medical care and rest.

After careful and extensive discussion with Onew and the group, a decision was made to have Onew focus on recovering for the time being as he will be unable to participate in the upcoming concert and album activities.

Therefore, the upcoming SHINee concert and album activities will proceed with Key, Minho, and Taemin. We will do our best to assist Onew to meet the fans again in good health and will inform you as soon as he is recovered and able to return to the stage.

We understand that SHINee’s promotional activities have been long-awaited by the members, fans, and our company. And we’d like to emphasize that this decision was made to ensure that SHINee may continue their activities in good health for a long time. We apologize for causing concern to the fans, and we ask for your generous understanding at this time.

Key, Minho, and Taemin are putting their greatest effort to show only their best, and we kindly ask for your support and love for SHINee’s June concert and 8th album.

Thank you.

SHINee is set to hold a three-night concert, “SHINee WORLD VI [PERFECT ILLUMINATION]” at Seoul’s KSPO Dome on June 23, 24, and 25. After releasing their new pre-release track “The Feeling” tomorrow June 10, SHINee will be returning with their eighth full-length album “HARD” on June 26, marking their first group comeback in over two years.

Wishing Onew the speediest of recoveries!
