Oh My Girl's Jiho is taking a break from group promotions to focus on her mental health, as confirmed in a statement from WM Entertainment.
The agency stated that Jiho has been receiving treatment at hospital since late 2019 due to the deterioration of her health and bouts of frequent anxiety. They wrote: "Recently, the symptoms of anxiety have worsened, and we decided that it would be difficult for her to carry out her activities as part of Oh My Girl as usual. To prioritise our artist's health, we decided that she should take a temporary break".
The agency said they'll be focusing on helping her better her health so she can return to the group soon.
