TWICE’s Jeongyeon (Instagram) 

K-pop girl group TWICE member Jeongyeon, 24, is suspending her activities again due to health reasons.

In a statement, JYP Entertainment said, “We would like to inform you about TWICE member Jeongyeon’s current health situation.”

“Jeongyeon is currently experiencing panic and psychological anxiety. Although Jeongyeon was moving forward with her schedule by simultaneously taking action for recovery, we value our artists’ health as the most important issue,” it said.

It added, “Therefore, after deep discussions internally accompanied by professional medical measures, we have decided that it is needed for Jeongyeon to have sufficient time to focus on her recovery and rest.”

“After discussions with Jeongyeon herself and other TWICE members, we inform you that Jeongyeon will be unable to attend TWICE’s activity for a while in future schedule. As the artist label, we will provide the best procedures for Jeongyeon to recover with sufficient amount of time. We kindly ask for your love and support for Jeongyeon’s full recovery,” said the agency.

This is the second time that Jeongyeon suspended her activities due to health reasons. In October last year, Jeongyeon went on hiatus after “experiencing psychological anxiousness in moving forward with her schedule,” said JYP Entertainment then.

As a result, Jeongyeon skipped the promotional activities for TWICE’s second studio album “Eyes Wide Open,” which was released last Oct. 26.
