Wishing SEVENTEEN’s Seungkwan a quick and complete recovery!

SEVENTEEN’s multi-faceted member Seungkwan will be taking a break from promotions due to an ankle injury.

Just recently, Pledis Entertainment shared the unfortunate news to fans through an official announcement. “Seungkwan recently injured his ankle while practicing. He immediately visited the hospital to receive treatment and a detailed examination where he was diagnosed with a ‘left ankle ligament rupture.’ With the doctor’s opinion that surgery was inevitable in this case, he underwent surgery last Saturday,” the agency said.

As of now, the idol is currently focusing on recovery after the surgery. The agency also revealed, “Starting from today, we will be temporarily halting Seungkwan’s activities to protect our artist, so we ask for your understanding in advance so that he can focus solely on his recovery.”

The rest of the SEVENTEEN members namely, S.Coups, Jeonghan, Joshua, Jun, Hoshi, Wonwoo, Woozi, The8, DK, Mingyu, Vernon, and Dino, will continue to carry out their planned promotions temporarily without Seungkwan.

Meanwhile, in related news, the well-loved idol group will be gifting Japanese fans with new music soon. Titled 24H, the boy group’s newest mini-album will be released on September 9.
