Weeekly's Jiyoon to take break from activities due to anxiety
Jiyoon of girl group Weeekly will take a break from activities again due to mental health issues, according to her agency IST Entertainement on Tuesday.
"In the course of preparing for the Weeekly's upcoming album, Jiyoon has again displayed serious symptoms of anxiety," wrote the agency on its official social media page.
"After much discussion with her family and doctors, it has been concluded that it will be difficult for Jiyoon to continue her activities as a Weeekly member and that it will be best if she focuses on recovering her health for now."
Jiyoon had been on a four month hiatus until December after citing issues with anxiety last August.
Weeekly's new EP "Play Game: Awake" will be released as planned on April 7, but promotional activities will be carried out without Jiyoon.
Weeekly is a seven-member girl group that debuted in 2020 with its EP "We Are." Its members are Jihan, Zoa, Monday, Jiyoon, Jaehee, Soojin and Soeun.
