In an unforeseen turn of events, ATEEZ’s dedicated lead vocalist, Jongho, is poised to embark on a temporary hiatus, a decision motivated by the necessity of undergoing a significant surgical procedure.
This unexpected development comes hot on the heels of Jongho’s recent return to his home country, South Korea, from the vibrant city of Los Angeles.
His participation in the illustrious KCON LA 2023 event was abruptly curtailed due to the emergence of “extreme pain” in his leg, a situation that immediately sparked concern within both the devoted fan base and the wider music community.
This setback amplifies the significance of Jongho’s medical history, which features instances of prior injuries including an ankle injury and a meniscus rupture.
These experiences cast an even more critical light on the necessity of addressing his current health issue in a comprehensive manner. Responding to the recent bout of discomfort, Jongho has promptly chosen to redirect his focus towards seeking vital medical attention and evaluation within the confines of his home country.
