Oh My Girl's JinE is taking a break due to her struggle with anorexia. 

On August 25, WM Entertainment officially announced, "JinE is stopping all promotions due to her health condition. First, we apologize for the sudden news to all the fans who gave love to Oh My Girl and JinE. She has been showing signs of anorexia since debut and has been going to the hospital to receive treatment. After a long and thorough discussion with JinE, we decided on a break as our artist's health is first and foremost."

The agency continued, "The remaining 7 members will carry on the upcoming schedules without JinE, however, we will continue to support JinE throughout her break. We once again apologize for the sudden news. Please give Oh My Girl unchanging love and attention."


Meanwhile, back in October of 2015, JinE revealed her condition

    God, this situation just disgusts me so much! This poor girl, I cannot imagine how much she must be hurting right now. It's hard enough working in the K-pop world where looks and the never-ending fight to achieve perfection are a must- but having your personal issues and your mental illness plastered all over the news not once, but now TWICE!? She must be feeling terrible, and I'm so frustrated with her company right now. Sure, people say "Oh, her company took the issue very seriously", but for her to have a relapse this close to when it was first announced about her disorder....that's no coincidence. I have a feeling that the poor girl probably never got better; going to therapy and then saying a month later that she's doing "much better" is not how that process works. Plus, it was clear that she stayed about the same afterwards (I mean, I know many women are tinier in Korea, but she definitely looked ill.) This girl needs true support, real help, and a BREAK from this industry. I'm sorry if people don't like that, but I'd rather her be out of K-pop and be a healthy, happy individual than in it with a disease that may very well kill her one day. I'm so angry about this, and how clearly this girl's illness has NOT been treated. Glad they're giving her a break that she both needs and deserves, but if they bring her back a month later and try to act like "all is well" again like last time, I don't even want to imagine what she'd have to be going through to deal with that.

    I knew something was wrong when their agency had them put out 3 albums in the span of 4 months. Obviously they don't know how to manage their idols other than overworking them like this... really disappointed in WM!

    I don't understand, why she is again in a bad condition because looking at the refering article at the end of this. 2015 she said: "I will show a bride side of myself on stage. If I'm hurting, it worries many people. From now on, rather than an unreasonable diet, I will healthily take care of my body."Were that only empty words up until now?

    Anorexia is a mental illness. It's not easy to overcome and it relapses often. Her words were not empty. It's not like JinE isn't working hard to come over it. Her being in the entertainment industry makes it harder. So please give her the support she needs.

    Commendable action by the agency. I am glad that she is getting help. I have anorexia and it's so tough. I know exactly what she is going through. Hang in there! Let's pray together.

    im positive shes not the only one in the group with it.  Please recover jine oh my girl is definitely one of my bias groups and hope the best health for them. Sadly this is something that is very common in kpop industry and in korea in general i hope the best for them as a person who personally battles an eating disorder it can be deadly. And the way they dance it can hurt her alot

    So many idols have had or have eating disorder. IU and Sojung (Ladies Code) have battled those as well just from top of my head. The industry is just so bad with healthy body image and eating habits- you have people calling you fat for being normal weight or simply having some curves (for example Mamamoo's Hwasa), you have people celebrating being underweight and then you have company forcing you to dangerous trend diets like eating once a day. It's no wonder kpop idols keep having these disorders.
