GFRIEND's agency has stepped forward to address an incident in which member Yuju allegedly fainted at a recent fan signing event after suffering severe stomach pains.

Speaking to Nate, a source from Source Music confirmed that the 19-year-old did in fact suffer from stomach pains, but denied the rumours that she had actually fainted.

The agency later followed with an official statement, telling Naver: "Yuju experienced sudden pain in her stomach during a fan signing and went to a hospital."

They continued: "Through a detailed examination, she was diagnosed with acute enteritis. There was no other observation of concern, and she was sent home after being prescribed the appropriate medication. We apologise for causing fans at the fan signing to worry and ask for your understanding."

GFRIEND just finished promoting their new single "Love Whisper," which has been a huge hit for the group. Hopefully Yuju gets better soon!
