SEVENTEEN Mingyu to Go on a Temporary Hiatus; Here’s What Happened!

On October 26, 2023, PLEDIS Entertainment issued an official statement on Weverse declaring SEVENTEEN Mingyu’s temporary leave from the K-pop scene due to health reasons. The notice talks about “a sudden, crippling lower back pain” being experienced by the ’97 born idol that needed immediate medical attention.

He’ll be sitting out all music shows and fan-sign events scheduled for this week. The company is prioritising his health over everything else as more flexibility and discretion will be followed in his other activities and schedules to follow so as to comply with the doctor’s advice.
