Seventeen's Wonwoo, who was previously unable to attend the 'Dream Concert' and Seventeen's fan sign event after being diagnosed with acute gastritis, will now be taking a break from all of the group's upcoming promotional activities until further notice.

On June 15, Pledis Entertainment relayed, 

"Hello, this is Pledis Entertainment. 
Seventeen's Wonwoo has decided to take a break from his broadcast activities to focus on recovering his health. 
First, we would like to offer our sincere apologies to Seventeen's and Wonwoo's fans for the more abrupt news since his last announcement. 
From Wonwoo's previous gastritis diagnosis, we found out that his physical health has weakened considerably, and it will be difficult for him to continue carrying on with various broadcasts; therefore, we came to this decision after much discussion.

Wonwoo is currently resting and recovering from his gastritis with plans on returning accordingly sometime during Seventeen's repackaged album promotions and has taken part in the production process for the album including recording and MV filming. But the fast-paced schedule of music show performances and other promotional activities may overwork Wonwoo's body, and so we have asked him to rest for the sake of his future and his health. 

Although Wonwoo expressed great desire to promote with his members, the final decision came from the hope that in order for Wonwoo to promote under Seventeen's name for a long time with a healthy image, it's important for him to rest and recuperate now. From here on, Seventeen's repackaged album activities will be carried out with 12 members for a limited time. As soon as Wonwoo's physical health regains its strength, he plans on greeting his fans again. 
We apologize for concerning many of Seventeen's fans and ask for support toward Seventeen, including Wonwoo. 
Thank you." 

Even though the group's comeback stages will feel incomplete without Wonwoo, his health comes first! Get well soon!

Damn I dont know if I can fully enjoy this comeback. I'll support svt no matter what (obviouslyy) but seeing 12 instead of 13 is just... >< discomforting....Not to mention every time I see them i'll just be thinking the whole time, is wonwoo getting better? Is my baby ok? ;A; -cries- that being said, good job for his company for letting him sit this one out.  HEALTH. COMES. FIRST. Its damn time this industry realizes that. Wonu-ya recover as quick as you can k? And then come back to us with your full strength! ;;

Its fine if he is absent from promotions and other events as long as he would rest and get better! FIGHTING WONWOO AND SEVENTEEN!!

He's so skinny and usually idols would miss meals because of their busy schedules. of course he would have allot of built up gas from not eating well. Being skinny and having that hurts like hell that's for sure.

Get well soon!!!  Your fans will be waiting until you return.

I hope he gets better soon because Seventeen won't be the same without him. :'(

Yes. I'm glad you chose his health over his desire to promote though I doubt this will lessen the money you're raking, Pledis. I hope he will recuperate soon so he can join the others in their Asian tour. I want to see Seventeen with all thirteen members! T.T

Poor guy, his condition must be really bad. Please rest well!

Oh my god. Although I'm thankful for PLedis in this one, I think I'll have a hard time to look forward for this comeback. Because there is no Wonwoo and he is my bias in SVT T.T. Get well soon Jeon Wonwoo! <3
