Starship released a statement on MONSTA X's fan cafe this morning regarding the health of Hyungwon.
“During the filming of ‘Music Bank’ this afternoon, a small wound and swelling was discovered on Hyungwon’s knee,” the statement explained. “He immediately went to the hospital, and following an examination was diagnosed with the early stages of cellulitis [a bacterial skin infection].”
“According to the doctor, if he does not undergo the treatment required for the early stages of cellulitis, the bacteria could spread quickly, and therefore it was decided that he would immediately be hospitalized,”
“We once again sincerely apologize to the fans in Hong Kong who have been waiting a long time for MONSTA X’s world tour,”
The first date on the World Tour is scheduled for tomorrow, 7/8 in Hong Kong. It is unclear if the U.S. leg of the "Beautiful" World Tour will be effected (though it likely will), with the first American date on July 12th. As for now Hyungwon has ceased all activities in favor of rest and treatment and only time will tell when he will be healthy enough to return.
I can only imagine how disappointed he must be as he will not be able to participate in the start of the world tour.
I'm wishing Hyungwon a speedy recovery and I'm hoping he doesn't beat himself up over this. No matter how long it takes to recover, his health is more important than his schedule.
