JYP Entertainment has confirmed that Youngjae will not be attending the groups Australian fan meet event after sustaining a back injury.
GOT7s Youngjae has been taken to the hospital in order to treat a back injury. As a result, JYP announced that he will not be present with the rest of the group at their GOT7 GLOBAL FANMEET IN AUSTRALIA 2017. While his injury is not thought to be serious, he is currently being treated and recovering in hospital.
JYP Entertainment released a statement regarding Youngjaes condition.
Due to health concerns, Youngjae will not participate in GOT7 GLOBAL FANMEETING IN AUSTRALIA 2017 on April 20, 21, 23, and 24.
Due to a back injury, Youngjae is currently being treated and recovering in the hospital.
Considering his health status, it is difficult for him to participate in the Australia fan meetings, and therefore decided not to attend.
Sincere apologies to all of the fans who have been highly anticipating [the fan meetings]. Youngjaes recovery is now the top priority. Thank you.
It is unclear whether or not this is related to his absence from their fan meets in October of last year as JYP Entertainment never released any official details regarding his previous absence, but fans are showing Youngjae continued support and understanding. Immediately after the announcement, fans took to Twitter to show their support with the hashtag #GetWellSoonYoungjae, and are praying for the singers quick recovery.
