ITZY’s Lia Announces Temporary Hiatus For Health Reasons + Shares Handwritten Letter To Fans
On September 18, JYP Entertainment shared the following announcement via ITZY’s official fan community:
Hello, this is JYPE.
We would like to inform you about the status of ITZY member Lia’s health and her future activities.
Lia underwent consultation and examination as she is experiencing extreme tension and anxiety about carrying out her scheduled activities and received medical advice that she needs rest and treatment.
With the artist’s health as our top priority, after careful discussion with the members, we decided that Lia will not participate in scheduled activities starting from today and will take a break for the time being to focus on her treatment.
The timing of Lia’s resumption of activities will be decided after sufficient discussion between Lia and the members.
We sincerely apologize for causing concern to fans.
We will announce Lia’s resumption of activities as soon as it is decided.
On that day, Lia posted a handwritten letter to fans on ITZY’s Instagram account.
Read the letter below:
I think MIDZY must have been surprised to hear today’s news. Since MIDZY worries about me more than anyone else even when I am a little sick, I was worried that you would be heartbroken and sad when you heard the news. But at the same time, because MIDZY knows and believes in me more than anyone else, I was able to muster the courage, knowing you would understand and wait for me.
It’s been six years since I began this journey together with the members I met through our shared dream! I was able to go through that time and come this far thanks to the members and MIDZY. It feels like we’ve passed by so many things one after another. Of course, those times must also be filled with our memories and happy moments we spent together. Although they were such precious times, I came to realize that I’ve been gradually losing myself while running up to this point.
MIDZY are the people that I am always grateful to more than anyone else, so my only wish is to give you my love and happiness back. To that end, I felt like I needed to take some time off to love and fill myself first. As I always say, I sincerely hope that MIDZY will be happy. I will work to return in good health in order to repay how much MIDZY wait and worry for me.
Thank you always, and I love you.
