Haechan, a member of K-pop boy bands NCT Dream and NCT 127, took a break from his activities due to health problems.
In a notice released on Jan. 6, SM Entertainment, NCT’s agency, said that Haechan will be absent from schedules “due to poor health.”
“Recently, Haechan felt symptoms of abnormal conditions such as heart palpitations and chest tightness, so he went to the hospital with his manager for consultation and examination, and received the opinion of the medical staff that he needed treatment and rest,” the agency said.
According to the Mayo Clinic website, “Heart palpitations are feelings of having a fast-beating, fluttering or pounding heart. Stress, exercise, medication or, rarely, a medical condition can trigger them.”
It explained that “although heart palpitations can be worrisome, they’re usually harmless. Rarely, heart palpitations can be a symptom of a more serious heart condition, such as an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), that might require treatment.”
SM Entertainment said, “As Haechan’s health recovery is the most important thing, he plans to take a break and recover his health by not participating in any schedules for the time being. As a result, Haechan decided not to participate in the schedule for the next week, and we will inform you again when the schedule resumes later.”
“We sincerely apologize for causing concern to the fans, and ask for the fans’ generous understanding that this decision was made for Haechan’s health. We will do our best to support Haechan so that he can meet his fans in a healthier way,” it said.
As a result, Haechan will be absent from the US and Latin America legs of NCT 127’s “Neo City: The Link” concert tour that will start on Jan. 9 until Jan. 28. It will cover the US, Chile, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico.
“Please be informed that Haechan will not be able to participate in the NCT 127 2nd Tour Neo City: USA & Latin America-The Link due to health issues,” Dreammaker USA announced.
It added, “Therefore, 8 members will participate in the USA/Latin America concerts as scheduled. We ask for your kind understanding.”
