Today, Beat Interactive announced that A.C.E‘s Byeongkwan would not appear in the G★K-Pop online concert scheduled for May 8.

Around the time of filming in April, Byeongkwan contracted shingles and was unable to participate in the online concert’s preparation. Shingles comes from the same virus that causes chickenpox and appears as a painful rash. It is also highly contagious, so he stepped out not only for his safety but others.

Luckily, Byeongkwan no longer has Shingles and is healthily and happily back with his members.
