The comeback track of South Korean boy group, WINNER, has been pushed back due to the bad mental health of one of its members.
On Wednesday, band's label, YG Entertainment released an official statement defining the exact cause. The representative from the agency stated that the member, Nam Tae Hyun, is suffering from a psychological outbreak and cannot take part in group's future activities: "After discerning that it would be difficult for him to continue promoting, we have decided that his future activities will be suspended in order for him to focus on treatment," the staffer said.
"This has been done because the most important priority is his health. He has been staying at home with his mother and is receiving treatment instead of staying at the dorms," YG explained further.
As per reports, the agency was well aware of Tae Hyun's health from the time the singer entered the label as a trainer. He was doing well earlier, but his mental health worsened gradually, and the agency was forced to take this tough decision.
On WINNERS comeback, YG said : "We currently cannot predict WINNER's timeframe for their promotions, which is regrettable. However, the other WINNER members, along with YG, are putting in their best effort to overcome the first crisis that has hit the team."
