G-Friend's Umji will be taking a break due to a health issue. 

On October 5, her label Source Music officially announced, "G-Friend's Umji will temporarily halt all her promotions due to a health issue. Recently, Umji felt pain in her legs and was found to have sprained her left sartorius muscle. The thin, long sartorius muscle is used when walking or using the knee, and an issue in this muscle seems to be the cause of her pain. Taking consideration of the doctor's recommendation that treatment and rest will allow the fastest recovery, Source Music has decided to put Umji's recovery as its top priority. G-Friend will continue promoting as a group of 5 with Sowon, Yerin, Eunha, Yuju, and SinB until Umji fully recovers."

The label continued, "We ask that Buddie and everyone please understand this decision that was made with Umji's health in consideration. Source Music will fully support Umji so that she will have sufficient treatment and rest. We apologize for concerning those who cheer on Umji and G-Friend. Please continue your unchanging support."

Get well soon, Umji!

Damn they are overworking GFriend so much, on every show each member said their biggest worry is rest

i wonder how long it takes for that muscle to heal... it's not a particularly thick muscle so i imagine it would be quick. At the same time I wonder how on earth you can injure that muscle in the first place o_O she must've been doing some really weird dance moves for her to be able to get it to the point it got injured..

One reason can be is that maybe they forgot to warm up or perhaps she tripped.

To put it in a better way, it definitely looks like Umji had a leg pain issue and therefore will unfortunately be sitting out for the rest of GFriend's current "Navillera" promotions.  And that does mean we will have to see GFriend on stage as a incomplete quintet for the time being until the pain in Umji's legs finally goes away.  And to further rest assure each and every one of you here, of course Umji isn't leaving the group at all.  It's just that Umji will have to press pause on her promotions with the rest of the group until she is back to being 100%.  So, with all of that being said as we speak, let's all just cross our fingers and hope that Umji will get better as fast as possible.

i will not be shocked if she's back with new face

It's such a shame that you feel you need to resort to these kinds of comments. Instead of being positive and cheering Umji on, you're talking her down. Really, why? Because Umji isn't the prettiest idol you've seen? Newsflash, most likely neither are you. Without having the need for a picture, I bet 99% of the people who are commenting on Umji's looks are far worse off than she is. Why not do something positive with your life instead? This message was not brought to you by a Buddy. Instead, I'm just a normal guy (yes, I'm a male) who would like to see more love in the world. Umji is doing that by the power of song. What power are you using?

daven11 Wednesday, October 5, 2016

umji really work hard hope she recover soon gfriend  is not complete without umji because all of them has diffrent personality but has the same way of thinking.

partyfan2013 daven11 Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Well, it is what it is. Of course everyone knows that health comes first before anything else.

daven11 Wednesday, October 5, 2016

well i hope she come back soon

suntaehyo Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Aw... Get better soon baby Umji unnie!!! 😚😖

OhMyGuy Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Probably because Source Music overworks these girls to death

NgohiongPuso OhMyGuy Wednesday, October 5, 2016

With your logic... The rest of them should've gotten same injury... kids these days...

nanuk NgohiongPuso Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Not necessarily... that's like saying everyone running the same distance should become tired at the same time... which doesn't make much sense at all, right?

sonelflee OhMyGuy Wednesday, October 5, 2016

You stupid af~ SourceMusic is Strict on them, but they care and love the girls like their kids. ofc you wouldn't know because you don't know GFriend well. Gfriend has a great relationship with their staff and CEO.

NgohiongPuso nanuk Wednesday, October 5, 2016

That is indeed the logic. Umji got injured. Umji is from Source Music. Gfriend is from Source Music. Umji is member of Gfriend.. If Umji got injured therefore Gfriend got injured... hahahah :) That is indeed his logic..

partyfan2013 OhMyGuy Wednesday, October 5, 2016

That's nonsense. Why don't we all just hope that Umji will heal as quickly as possible and deal with seeing GFriend as a incomplete quintet for the time being?

bambamgot7 Wednesday, October 5, 2016

horrible company. give them rest.  I think Twice is next

NgohiongPuso bambamgot7 Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Compared to who? They already let her have a rest... Just because she got those that injury... the company is already horrible? what logic!

IGOTBUDDIES bambamgot7 Wednesday, October 5, 2016
