Apink will not be attending the 2017 MBC Gayo Daejejun today.

Plan A Entertainment took to Apink’s official fan cafe and social media accounts to announce, “It has become impossible for all of the members to attend today’s MBC Gayo Daejejun as member Hayoung is currently ill (Influenza A Virus). The illness in question requires quarantine measures due to being contagious, which has made carrying out today’s planned schedule difficult.”

They continued on to write, “The other five members excluding Hayoung will be greeting fans who came for the pre-recording. We ask for your understanding.” They stated that they would be giving out snacks and holding a small fan meeting for all of the fans who had already arrived at the venue for Apink’s pre-recording schedule.

After the fan meeting, Bomi took to Apink’s Twitter account to reassure fans as she wrote, “To our Pandas, thank you for coming out in such large numbers despite the cold weather. The event was very pretty and we had so much fun! Though it’s unfortunate that we won’t be able to perform today, we’ll take that energy we were supposed to use today and put it into our next concerts! Thank you and we’re sorry to all of our fans! I will take the photos we took today and keep them in my diary. I got to spend my last day of 2017 with Pandas.”

Chorong also wrote, “I think our members and our Pandas were very sad about the sudden cancellation today. It’s unfortunate that we had to cancel because we were preparing for our stage with joy in our hearts at the thought of ringing in the new year with our fans. We tried our best to stand on stage with just five members, but that plan didn’t really work out with the broadcasting company. We’re really sorry. But we gained so much strength from our Pandas who smiled brightly and told us it was okay. Hayoung will recover quickly so don’t worry too much about her, and we hope our Pandas will also take care of your health. Let’s have fun at our upcoming concerts where it will just be Apink and our Pandas. Thank you for everything this year!”

We hope that Hayoung has a speedy and full recovery!
