The official statement is posted on NCT SMTOWN's webpage. The announcement reads:

"Hello. This is SM Entertainment. 

We appreciate all the fans for the great attention on the teaser images of NCT Dream's first single album 'The First' that were revealed today. We're here to make an announcement for the fans who've waited for Jaemin.

Last year, Jaemin, who joined promotions for 'Chewing Gum', has been treated for a herniated disc since his trainee days. His condition has worsened and because we believe that artist's health is first priority and most important, we decided for him to focus on treatment and take a break for this promotions. 

We ask fans to understand and give many support and encouragement for his fast recovery. 

Once again, we appreciate all the fans who support NCT Dream. NCT Dream will work their best to repay the love.

Thank you."

I know I'm late - it was the first thing I noticed when I watched the MV, but I never saw this article -, but nooooo, my babyyyyy (who's only a few months younger than me, but still my baby). I feel so bad for him! I hope he gets well soon so I can fangirl over his ridiculously adorable smile and overall cutenessssss

He has a hernia??  How old is this kid??? :O  I don't listen to them, but man, I feel bad for him getting an injury like that when he's so young.

Glad that they're giving him time off, herniated disks hurt like hell and take a while to heal if they really ever heal. Get well Jaemin <3

Yeah I was surprised at that "the health of our artists comes first" part, honestly, given SM's track record. But it's good for sure. He's so young, too. I'm curious still about Taeyong's waist situation though.
