Hi, this is KQ Entertainment.
We would like to inform you about the return to activities of ATEEZ’ member Mingi.
First of all, we’d like to thank you for continuously supporting Mingi’s recovery.
During the rest of the year, Mingi focused on constant rehabilitation and exercise treatment, and after the test results of the specialist in charge, he was found to be in good condition to carry on with schedules.
Therefore, Mingi will begin to participate in ATEEZ’ domestic and overseas schedules as usual, starting from the 2019 Mnet Asian Music Awards.
Please keep supporting ATEEZ and Mingi in the future.
This news comes just in time for the group’s Japanese debut as well.
Welcome back, Mingi!
Original article (October 28)
On October 28, KQ Entertainment posted a new announcement on ATEEZ‘ official fancafe regarding Mingi’s condition.
We bring you the full statement translated into English:
Hello, this is KQ Entertainment,
First of all, we’d like to thank everyone for your support despite the absence of our member Mingi. We would like to inform you that Mingi is concentrating on his recovery and hoping to participate in future activities.
However, we have been informed by medical professionals that the recovery process will take much longer than a few weeks. Mingi and our company agreed that he needs more of a recovery period.
Therefore, Mingi will not be participating in both domestic and international schedules following this announcement until further notice.
ATEEZ have recently finished their “WONDERLAND” comeback promotions with a goodbye stage on MBC’s Show! Music Core (October 26) and a Halloween fansign event on Sunday, October 27. They have no official activities scheduled for the time being, save the start of their second world tour “The Fellowship: Map The Treasure” next year.
Stay tuned for updates.
Get well soon, Mingi!
