GOT7 are nearly upon us, Australian iGOT7s, but unfortunately, Youngjae won't be able to pay us a visit due to an injury.

In a new statement from JYP Entertainment, Youngjae is currently recovering from a back injury and is thus unable to attend the scheduled Australian fan meets.

Here is JYP's statement in full:

“We would like to inform you that Youngjae will be unable to attend the ‘GOT7 Global Fan Meeting in Australia 2017’ that will be held on April 20-24, due to health reasons.”

“Youngjae is currently recovering from a back injury while receiving hospital treatment. After taking into consideration the current status of his health, we decided it would be difficult for him to attend.”

“We sincerely apologize to all the fans who were anticipating [this event]. We will do our best to make sure Youngjae recovers.”

Every iGOT7 in Australia is wishing you a speedy recovery, Youngjae!
