He has received the necessary medical treatment and is currently resting in the dorms. Luckily, he has no scheduled broadcasted appearances in the immediate future," a YMC Entertainment representative said after confirming the news.
As for the fan meet event that was supposed to take place on December 6, the YMC representative said no final decision had been taken yet.
