Health Factors, Shownu Monsta X Absent Comeback Promotion
Windowofworld.com – One of the Monsta X members, Shownu, was reportedly unable to participate in comeback promotion activities due to health problems. This is known from the statement released by the agency, Starship Entertainment.
According to reports, last summer, it was revealed that Shownu was diagnosed with retinal detachment in his left eye and had undergone surgery.
In their official statement, Starship stated that despite continuing to regularly monitor Shownu’s health condition, the 28-year-old singer began to experience discomfort in his eyes, especially when exposed to bright light.
While in the hospital, Shownu was told that the discomfort was caused by sub-retinal fluid and proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) as complications of the original discharge. While in comeback promotion activities, Monsta X will be faced with a number of activities that are mostly carried out in conditions of exposure to stage lights.
The doctor advised Shownu to take complete rest to avoid further damage to his eye condition.
As the agency that oversees Monsta X, Starship held discussions with Shownu and other Monsta X members, they agreed to decide that Shownu would not participate in the comeback promo.
In its official statement, Starship also said that it prioritizes the health of its artists.
“Starship Entertainment prioritizes the health of our artists. After discussing with all Monsta X members, that Shownu will not participate in promotional activities, “said Starship Entertainment.
Starship also added that they ask for the understanding of Monsta X fans considering that Shownu’s recovery process must be prioritized. Not only that, Starship also expressed its apology and asked fans to continue to support Monsta X
“We ask for your understanding as we plan to decide on Shownu’s future participation in a flexible manner based on consultation with the Shownu medical specialist,” Starship explained.
Monsta X itself will make their comeback on June 1, 2021 by releasing a mini album entitled “One of a Kind”.
This is MONSTA X’s first Korean comeback since the release of their third studio album “Fatal Love” with the title song “Love Killa” in November 2020.
