Due to health issues, TWICE’s Jeongyeon will be taking another hiatus from activities.
On August 18, JYP announced that Jeongyeon will not be participating in TWICE’s scheduled activities for the time being owing to panic and psychological anxiety symptoms in order to focus on her rehabilitation.
In October of last year, Jeongyeon had to suspend her activities due to anxiety symptoms. Jeongyeon, who could not participate in promotional activities for the title track of Twice’s 2nd full album, ‘I Can’t Stop Me,’ announced her comeback by attending the ’30 High1 Seoul Music Awards’ stage in January of this year.
Although the female idol had returned to the group’s activities during Alcohol-Free promotions, fans realized that she still felt uncomfortable and anxious when performing.
And after 2 months since the end of the promotion for Alcohol-free and Perfect Word (TWICE’s Japanese song), she has to take another hiatus.
JYP Entertainment’s full English statement is as follows:
