The leader of the thirteen-member group Seventeen is on a temporary hiatus to receive treatment for anxiety, Pledis Entertainment confirmed in a statement on November 18.
According to his agency, S.Coups and his bandmates have decided that it’s ideal for him to rest and temporarily abstain from the group’s forthcoming activities.
The following day, agency Brand New Music updated fans about Park Woo-jin on AB6IX’s official fan cafe following his absence during their performance at the 2019 V Live Awards V HEARTBEAT award ceremony.
