AceShowbiz - K-Pop star Mina Myoi has briefly quit girl group TWICE to focus on her mental health.
The 22-year-old singer stepped away from the band last month (July 2019) and now a spokesperson for her management team at JYP Entertainment has explained why she's sidelined.
"After receiving several examinations from medical experts, we have confirmed that Mina's current health condition can be identified as anxiety disorder," a statement obtained by JustJared reads. "The biggest symptom to note regarding this illness is that the individual can suffer severe periods of anxiety without warning, whether it be continuously or sporadically; furthermore, the severity of these anxiety spells can also fluctuate suddenly and spontaneously."
"Due to such unpredictable symptoms, we are currently discussing the possibility of Mina's participation in schedules with the individual as well as with the TWICE members in order to reach a decision. In addition, we notify that Mina's participation in promotional schedules will be determined objectively on the grounds that Mina feels capable in her health condition, and so please understand that her participation will be limited and selective (sic)."
"We will continue to do our best to ensure Mina recovers... We ask for fans' abundant support and encouragements (sic)."
