YMC Entertainment stated Kang Daniel would not be performing with Wanna One, but he did insist that he greet fans who came to see the boy group. He stated on stage, "I'm sorry to those who came to see our performances. Please be careful as the weather is cold. I got a really severe cold this time. I'm normally healthy."
He continued, "I went to the salon, so that I'd look better than yesterday. I wanted to look less sick. I came because I wanted to see you all."
Kang Daniel also revealed he saw the birthday advertisement in New York's Times Square fans gifted him, saying, "I saw the electronic billboard in New York's Times Square. I only remember spending my birthdays with my mom and cat in my room, so I'm thankful to receive so much congratulations from so many people for the first time. I'm looking forward to the fan con as well. I hope you enjoy it then as well. I ask that you cheer for Wanna One, who worked hard to prepare for today."
As previously reported, Kang Daniel is taking a break from his schedule due to his ill health according to his agency, but he's still taking the effort to greet fans at events.
