KQ Entertainment has released a statement on ATEEZ Jongho's knee injury.

On August 28, the label revealed Jongho was diagnosed with a minor knee cartilage injury, and he won't be able to participate in the group's choreography for the time being. KQ Entertainment's full statement is as follows:

"This is a notice about ATEEZ member Jongho's health condition.

Recently, Jongho's knee has been feeling uncomfortable, so he visited the hospital. He was diagnosed with a minor knee cartilage injury.

Though it's a minor injury, he's been refraining from intense choreography for the recovery of his left ankle that had been injured before and the comeback of the new album in September.

In order to recover, he participated in limited choreography for the new album comeback content and etc., which are being released consecutively. Therefore, he won't be participating in choreography at the Japanese online event that will be starting today.

Jongho is recovering well, and this is to ensure his participation on stage and activities for the new album 'Zero: Fever Part 3'. We ask for your understanding, and we'll do our best so that he can recover quickly."

One of the things I always find interesting when watching Knowing Brothers or similar talk focused variety shows is how many current and former idols in their 30's and 40's, have bad knees, backs, shoulders, wrists, or ankles. All those years of dance practice and performing on hard floors, and all the times they go out and perform on an injured joint add up much like how you see ball players often having all sorts of degenerative bone and joint injuries or horrible arthritis in their 40's. So often idols don't take the time to properly rehab and recover from an injury either due to company pressure or self-imposed pressure not wanting to let fans down or fearing that they will look soft to others in their group who may also be nursing chronic injuries but still performing. It's one of the sad parts to show business and athletics.
