The full statement is as follows:

Hello. This is Cre.ker Entertainment.

This is an announcement regarding THE BOYZ’s Younghoon’s injury and treatment.

Younghoon, who injured his collarbone in 2019 and received treatment for it, underwent surgery at the end of April to remove the steel rod that had been inserted at the time.

The surgery to remove the steel rod does not stop him from participating in everyday activities, but the doctor has advised that he refrain from excessive movement for about two months. Therefore, Younghoon was unable to participate in Round 3 of Mnet’s Kingdom and during his recovery, he will remain seated for performances during [THE BOYZ’s] scheduled activities. This includes the activity on May 21.

We will do everything we can to ensure that Younghoon is able to meet fans in good health as soon as possible

We ask for fans’ generous understanding. Thank you.

We hope that Younghoon makes a quick recovery!
