According to the agency, the MONSTA X leader is recovering from his recent operation due to retinal detachment, which is defined by the National Eye Institute as an “eye problem that happens when your retina (a light-sensitive layer of tissue in the back of your eye) is pulled away from its normal position at the back of your eye.”

Starship Entertainment’s statement is as follows:

Hello, this is Starship Entertainment. Wewould like to inform you about our artist, Shownu from MONSTA X.

Shownu was pre-examining at an ophthalmology clinic for LASIK surgery scheduled for July 2.

As a result of his thorough examination, he was diagnosed with retinal detachment for his left eye, and an emergency operation was required, thus it was urgently performed this afternoon.

We will make efforts to ensure a speedy recovery for our artist’s health, and we will notify you of the future schedule [of activities] separately in consideration of the opinion of the specialist in charge as well as Shownu’s recovery status.

We sincerely apologize for causing concern to the fans who love MONSTA X, and we will continue to do our best to take care of the members’ health.

Thank you.

Last June 18, Shownu celebrated his birthday and released a choreography cover video for the song “Heartless” by The Weeknd.
