***** UPDATE #1 *****
In a new update on Himchan's injury, TS Entertainment have announced that after some careful consideration, it has been decided that he will be sitting out on B.A.P's upcoming round of promotions in order to recover from a rib injury.
The company have issued out a new statement, explaining that after despite initially compromising with Himchan by having him sing and not do any dancing, it was after the recording of B.A.P's appearance on the March 15th episode of "Show Champion" that discussions were held with Himchan, and everyone concluded that it was best for Himchan to sit out on promotions to solely focus on his recovery.
Wishing you a speedy recovery, Himchan!
In some unfortunate news to B.A.P and their fans, Himchan has suffered a minor injury to his ribs.
In a new statement from TS Entertainment, it was revealed that Himchan has a minor stress fracture in his ribs due to his sudden weight loss and the amount of practice put in for B.A.P's comeback. While rest is recommended for an injury like this, Himchan did not want to miss out on the group's latest comeback, and as such, a compromise was reached where he will only sing and avoid doing any dancing.
Here's the statement in full:
"Hello, this is TS Entertainment.
We're here to make an announcement about the health condition of B.A.P member Himchan.
On the 14th, Himchan immediately went to the hospital as he felt pain around his chest after live broadcast for MTV 'The Show'. There it was revealed that stress fracture led to a crack in his ribs.
According to the expert, the injury is not a result of a physical shock. It's judged that sudden weight loss and a great amount of practice for their comeback has led to stress on his ribs.
It's recommended to avoid exercise and excessive movement for a stress fracture, however, Himchan expressed great desires to continue promoting with B.A.P since they made a comeback as a whole for the first time in awhile. In respect to Hinchan's strong dedication, we have decided that Himchan will go on stage with B.A.P without doing the choreography.
TS Entertainment will continuously monitor Himchan's condition and give more detailed attention.
We apologize for causing concerns to many fans. Please give more attention to B.A.P's promotion.
Glad to hear that it was nothing serious, and we're wishing you a speeding recovery, Himchan!
