TWICE member Jeongyeon will be halting all activities and taking a break to focus on her mental health recovery. The 24-year old has been experiencing symptoms of panic and psychological anxiety, and as reported previously, Jeongyeon also went on a temporary hiatus last October due to the same reasons and health concerns. Her agency, JYP Entertainment, released a full statement regarding the matter:
“Hello, this is JYP Entertainment.
We would like to inform you about TWICE member Jeongyeon’s current health situation. Jeongyeon is currently experiencing panic and psychological anxiety.
Although Jeongyeon was moving forward with her schedule by simultaneously taking action for recovery, we value our artists’ health as the most important issue. Therefore, after deep discussions internally accompanied by professional medical measures, we have decided that it is needed for Jeongyeon to have sufficient time to focus on her recovery and rest.
After discussions with Jeongyeon herself and other TWICE members, we inform you that Jeongyeon will be unable to attend TWICE’s activity for a while in future schedule.
As the artist label, we will provide the best procedures for Jeongyeon to recover with sufficient amount of time.
We kindly ask for your love and support for Jeongyeon’s full recovery. Thank you.”
After the announcement, Jeongyeon took to the social media platform, Bubble, where she told her fans: “I’m sorry ONCEs. I will rest well and return when I’m healthier and better. I will use Bubble often. Please wait for me.”
Sending Jeongyeon all of our best wishes and a healthy recovery!
