JEONGHAN recently visited the hospital due to increased pain in his elbow and received word from the medical staff that his lateral epicondylitis and tendon damage has worsened. It has been determined that surgery was needed which he received on Wednesday the 15th.
The operation was successful, and the artist has been recuperating after being discharged as of Thursday the 16th. JEONGHAN will be wearing cast for the time being, as well as brace in order to protect the treated area, and to aid in a faster recovery.

As such, JEONGHAN will be participating in the group's prearranged activities including the SEVENTEEN WORLD TOUR [BE THE SUN] in his cast and brace while continuously receiving medical consultations, so long as it does not put too much strain on his recovery. We ask our fans for your kind consideration.
