On March 15 (KST), TS Entertainment made an official announcement about Himchan's health condition. The announcement reads as follows:
"Hello, this is TS Entertainment.
We're here to make an announcement about the health condition of B.A.P member Himchan.
On the 14th, Himchan immediately went to the hospital as he felt pain around his chest after live broadcast for MTV 'The Show'. There it was revealed that stress fracture led to a crack in his ribs.
According to the expert, the injury is not a result of a physical shock. It's judged that sudden weight loss and a great amount of practice for their comeback has led to stress on his ribs.
It's recommended to avoid exercise and excessive movement for a stress fracture, however, Himchan expressed great desires to continue promoting with B.A.P since they made a comeback as a whole for the first time in awhile. In respect to Hinchan's strong dedication, we have decided that Himchan will go on stage with B.A.P without doing the choreography.
TS Entertainment will continuously monitor Himchan's condition and give more detailed attention.
We apologize for causing concerns to many fans. Please give more attention to B.A.P's promotion.
Hopefully Himchan makes a full recovery soon.
