The label issued the following statement:
"Hello, this is JYP Entertainment.
ITZY's Yeji will not be able to attend the '2021 Asia Artist Awards' ceremony today due to a back injury which she suffered while pre-recording her performance.
The doctor advised that she minimize her physical activities and get plenty of rest, and so prioritizing the artist's health above all else, we have come to this decision which we hope fans will understand.
The agency will continue to do its best toward Yeji's full recovery.
