“Hello. This is KQ Entertainment.

We are here to announce the current health situation of ATEEZ member Wooyoung to fans, who have shown unconditional love and support for the group.

Wooyoung will now be focusing on his recovery due to an ankle injury. Despite his injury, Wooyoung has been performing on live stage while sitting in a chair, much to his willingness and commitment to fans.

Eventually, when the injury’s pain continued, it was decided that Wooyoung would need medical examination and treatment. The decision to temporarily suspend Wooyoung’s activities was decided after an honest discussion with him, and the members of ATEEZ.

This decision came into agreement for Wooyoung to undergo treatment as planned. With this sudden news, he won’t be able to join ATEEZ’s schedules such as ‘THE DANCE DAY LIVE 2023″ and “KCON 2023 JAPAN.”

We offer our sincerest apologies to everyone and will do our utmost best to oversee Wooyoung’s recovery since his health is our top priority.

Thank you.”
