Starship Entertainment has announced to MONBEBE worldwide that MONSTA X‘s Joohoney will be taking a temporary hiatus from promotions due to suffering from anxiety symptoms.
Hello. This is STARSHIP Entertainment.
This is an announcement regarding MONSTA X member Joohoney’s health.
Joohoney recently visited multiple professional medical institutions for accurate diagnosis, regarding anxiety symptoms. The results of the examination showed that due to anxiety symptoms, sufficient rest and stability are essential for him to make a full recovery.
We have had a thorough discussion with Joohoney and MONSTA X members, and have decided to take continuous treatment and stability which focus on the restoration of Joohoney.
We ask for the understanding of the fans, as we have decided to suspend temporarily further activities to improve the artist’s health condition. We promise to do our best to give him all the support for his recovery.
Joohoney’s return will be based on his recovery status and professional opinion, which will also be conducted through careful consultation with Joohoney and the members.
We sincerely apologize for the concern we have caused to Joohoney’s fans who always show him, love. We will continue to do our best to maintain the health of MONSTA X members.
