JYP Entertainment issued out a statement on Jackson's condition, stating that “Jackson’s health suddenly worsened at the fan meet on March 11. [JYP] judged that it would be difficult for him to continue, so he had to sit out the last event, which was the hi-touch session. Jackson is currently resting and concentrating on getting his health back to normal.”
Wishing you a speedy recovery, Jackson, and come back when you're all better!
