In some unfortunate news for TWICE fans, Jihyo will be taking a hiatus from all group activities due to a knee injury.

JYP Entertainment released a new statement on the TWICE leader's condition, explaining that she is currently receiving treatment for some "abnormal" pain in her knee and will be taking a break for an unspecified period of time.

Here's JYP's statement in full:

“After we realized that Jihyo was experiencing pain in her knee area, we went to receive a more precise medical examination, which confirmed that the pain was abnormal. Jihyo is receiving the necessary treatment and is currently in the process of recovering. In order to make a more speedy recovery, Jihyo will inevitably not be able to participate in the group’s activities for a period of time. As this was a decision made with Jihyo’s health as our top priority, we ask for fans to be understanding and, as an agency, we will do our very best to help Jihyo make a full and speed recovery. Thank you.”

Get better soon, Jihyo, and we'll see you once you're back to 100%!
