On November 10, Pledis Entertainment made an announcement on the group's official fan cafe and informed about The8's health condition. The label stated, "Currently, The8 is experiencing difficulty in sitting down for a long time due to a backache. He has been continuing promotions on music shows and others as he expressed strong desires for the 2nd album. However, starting with the upcoming fan sign event that requires a long time, he plans to take a break for a while without excessively continuing promotions. We're letting the fans know that The8 will not be participating in the fan signing tomorrow but will only appear on stage for the greetings."
The event will be carried as scheduled with the remaining 12 members. Pledis Entertainment also apologized for delivering an unfortunate news and asked fans to give great encouragement and love for Seventeen.
Get well soon, The8.
