This is WM Entertainment.
Here is a report on the activities of member Jiho to the fans who support our artist OH MY GIRL .
Jiho, a member of the OH MY GIRL , had been receiving medical treatment since the second half of last year due to repeated physical and psychological instability.
Recently, however, her anxiety symptoms have become even more serious, and we have decided [for Jiho] to stop working for a while and take a break in order to prioritize the health of our artist because we think it is difficult for her to work at OH MY GIRL .
We’re sorry for the sudden announcement. We will do our utmost to restore physical condition and maintain health so that Jiho’s empty space does not last.
We would like to thank OH MY GIRL for their warm love and support.
Thank you very much.
We hope for your fast recovery Jiho! -HallyuLife.c.om
