YG Entertainment announced, “We formally announce the delay of WINNER’s comeback due to an unexpected situation.” The agency continued to clarify, “The reason for the delay is the health issue of member TaeHyun. He had been suffering from psychological health issues ever since his trainee days, and has been getting worse over the past few months.”
YG had sat down with the idol and his mother to discuss the situation months ago, where all parties agreed that continuing with his WINNER schedules would be too much on his deteriorating health. He started off by pulling out of abroad schedules and had been receiving proper treatment over the past months. The decision was made after putting the health of the artist as top priority.
Much of the Inner Circles were left hanging when WINNER launched their project album series “EXIT” this past February. After the promotions of the first series, “E”, there was no news about the following 3 albums. However, YG finally stepped up to explain the reasoning of the continuous delay.
The label explained, “We were unable to relay the news of the delays faster, because it is difficult to decide when a patient with psychological health issues will be able to recuperate. We had hoped to continue the group’s promotions right on through, but were unfortunately unable to do so.”
TaeHyun has been receiving treatment while not as his dorm, but spending time with his family where it is more comfortable for the artist. YG concluded its announcement by saying, “We are unfortunately unable to set a definite date for WINNER’s next promotions, but we will do our best with the members to ensure a safe and healthy comeback.”
Best of luck for TaeHyun and the WINNER members. We think Inner Circles will completely understand their reason for delay as the health of our idols is most important.
