ASTRO member Moonbin is going on hiatus from the K-pop boy group to focus on his health.

Fantagio Music shared a statement to ASTRO's fan cafe on November 12, confirming that Moonbin will be halting group promotions temporarily. They stated that Moonbin had been concerned about his health recently and after undergoing thorough examination at the hospital, it was decided by the doctor that he requires sufficient rest and treatment.

ASTRO will continue their activities as six members for the time being, including their upcoming comeback with sixth-mini album BLUE FLAME to be released on November 20.
