THE BOYZ's Sunwoo Diagnosed With Neuralgia And Neuritis Amidst Comeback

THE BOYZ’s agency has shared an update on Sunwoo’s health and future participation in comeback promotions.

On November 24, IST Entertainment announced that earlier that morning, Sunwoo had complained of pain in his neck and shoulder area. The agency explained that while they had initially planned to take Sunwoo to the hospital right away for diagnosis and treatment, Sunwoo had expressed a strong desire to take part in THE BOYZ’s performance on that day’s episode of “Music Bank,” so they had decided to take him to the hospital after the pre-recording instead.

Later that evening, IST Entertainment followed up with a statement announcing that after visiting the hospital, Sunwoo had been diagnosed with neuralgia and neuritis of the neck and shoulder area.

While Sunwoo was advised by a doctor “to minimize excessive movement for the time being,” he is said to have expressed “strong determination” to take part in THE BOYZ’s comeback promotions for their new album, which was just released earlier this week. As a result, he will be continuing activities “insofar as he can without overexerting himself.”

IST Entertainment’s full statement is as follows:

This is IST Entertainment.

We are making an announcement regarding THE BOYZ member Sunwoo’s health and future activities.

This morning (November 24), Sunwoo complained of neck and shoulder pain, so immediately after today’s music show pre-recording, he went to the hospital. There, he was diagnosed with neuralgia and neuritis of the neck and shoulder area, and he received treatment.

Based on the doctor’s opinion that he needs to minimize excessive movement for the time being, we discussed Sunwoo’s future participation in performances. As Sunwoo expressed strong determination to take part in album promotions, we chose to respect the artist’s opinion, and it was decided that he would continue activities insofar as he can without overexerting himself.

[Sunwoo] will be joining [THE BOYZ’s] upcoming scheduled activities and taking part in the scheduled fan signing event, and it has been decided that, as much as possible, he will try to avoid any setbacks to the schedule that was promised to fans.

We will consider our artist’s health our top priority, and we plan to continue to have [Sunwoo] undergo continuous treatment and to carefully check his condition so that his injury does not worsen.

Thank you.

Wishing Sunwoo a speedy and full recovery!
